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

Residents leave their homes to find higher grounds following an quake in Ternate, North Maluku, Indonesia, Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Last week, the BMKG issued a tsunami warning, which was later lifted, after a magnitude 6.9 quake hit off the northeastern shore of Sulawesi, west of Sunday's quake.

The Jakarta-based Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency said there was no threat of tsunami.

An quake of magnitude 7.3 struck the Moluccas islands in eastern Indonesia on Sunday, causing panic among residents - but there were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage.

The USGS is reporting a second quake has rocked the region, a magnitude 5.8 which struck 63km north of Laiwui.

A 5.8 magnitude aftershock followed around 30 minutes after, the agency website showed.

Iran is violating nuclear deal, enriching uranium
Apart from the USA and Iran, all parties concluded that it's best for them to remain committed to preserving the original deal. Argentina's IAEA Ambassador Rafael Grossi says the US and Iran have worked themselves into a hard position.

It says the focus had an estimated depth of 10 kilometers.

"The victim was hit by the debris when her house collapsed", local disaster mitigation agency official Ihksan Subur said on Monday, adding no other casualties have been reported. "Some people who live near the ocean are starting to move to higher ground", he said.

On July 7, an natural disaster of magnitude 6.9 struck off the Indonesian coast.

Indonesia, home to more than 260 million people, is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions due to its location along the Pacific "Ring of Fire".

The national broadcaster ABC said there were some reports of minor damage from the quake, and no injuries.

Last September, a 7.5-magnitude quake and a subsequent tsunami in Palu on Sulawesi island killed more than 2,200 with a thousand more declared missing.
