Indonesian authorities lifted a tsunami warning late Friday after a powerful quake earlier struck off the southern coast of heavily populated Java island.

The USGS initially put the quake's magnitude at 6.8 and at a shallower depth before raising its intensity.

The quake that occurred on Friday night, caused structural damage in over 100 buildings, including 58 houses and a mosque in the municipality of Pandeglang, located closest to the epicenter and the worst affected, the National Disaster Management Agency said in a statement. The warning was lifted around three hours later.

In December, the area was hit by a volcano-sparked tsunami that killed over 400 people.

M6.4 quake hits Japan's Fukushima, no reports of major damage
The weather agency issued an emergency warning when the quake hit, but there was no immediate report of injuries or damage. Japan sits at the junction of four tectonic plates and experiences a number of relatively violent quakes every year.

The shaking was felt in Indonesia's capital city of Jakarta, 240 miles from the epicenter, prompting people to run out of their homes.

"Everybody else ran too".

Indonesia is situated on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, which is frequently hit by earthquakes and sometimes accompanying tsunami. The natural disaster lasted around 40 seconds.

The most devastating in recent Indonesian history was on December 26 in 2004, when a magnitude 9.5 quake triggered a massive tsunami that killed around 226,000 people along the shorelines of the Indian Ocean, including more than 126,000 in Indonesia.

More than 2,000 people were killed and about 80,000 people were displaced in Central Sulawesi in September a year ago after a devastating quake and tsunami struck the island.
