A strong, shallow quake struck eastern Indonesia on Sunday, damaging homes and killing at least two people, officials said. A warning in this regard was issued to Indonesia's geophysics agency for the nearby coastal communities.

"Electricity went of during the natural disaster, but now it's back to normal", Subur said, adding that at least seven big aftershocks were felt after the initial quake.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - A strong, shallow quake struck eastern Indonesia on Sunday, damaging homes and killing at least one person, officials said.

According to state media, the natural disaster hit North Maluku on Sunday at 6:28 pm local time, forcing inhabitants to rush out of their homes in panic. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

A magnitude 7.3 natural disaster struck the Maluku Islands in eastern Indonesia on Sunday afternoon, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Just past year a tsunami killed thousands in the area of Sulawesi, but Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency said this quake won't have the potential to cause a tsunami.

The shallow quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles), according to USGS.

At least seven aftershocks stronger than magnitude 5 were recorded following the main quake, BMKG official Rahmat Triyono said in a statement.

Hundreds of people are still sheltering in several schools, government buildings and higher grounds.

In 2004, a big quake off the northern Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered a tsunami across the Indian Ocean, killing 220,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 168,000 in Indonesia.

No damage has been reported.

Indonesia is highly susceptible to earthquakes and tsunamis as it lies in the highly seismic "Ring of Fire", an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean.
