A tsunami warning issued after a 6.8 magnitude quake struck off Sulawesi Island in Indonesia has been lifted.
The country’s geophysics agency had earlier placed the warning for about 40 minutes.
The experts issued the alert today, Friday, by asking people to evacuate to higher ground after the quake stuck off the coast of its island of Sulawesi.
“It is clear that the quake has tsunami potential,” geophysics agency spokesman Taufan Maulana said.
“Residents are advised to evacuate as soon possible.”
