Powerful aftershocks strike Indonesia days after deadly quake & tsunami

A series of powerful aftershocks, ranging between 5 and 5.9 in magnitude, have rattled Indonesia just days after a deadly earthquake and tsunami wreaked havoc across the island of Sulawesi, killing hundreds.

The most powerful 5.9-magnitude quake was recorded at 10.6 km depth some 37 km South of Nggongi, USGS said. The earthquake, which struck at 11:59pm GMT, was preceded by a 5.2 jolt 25 km north of Palu about 15 minutes earlier.
