A strong earth quake has struck in waters off Indonesia.

The U.S. Geological Survey says there is no danger of a widespread destructive tsunami from the quake, which it says measured 6.4.

However it says there is a very small possibility of a local tsunami no more than a 100 kilometres from the quake epicentre, more than 160km north of Ambon in the Moluccas.
