Indonesia hits with 6.0 magnitude earthquake.
Dozens people are found dead and missing on spot.

A 6.0-extent tremor struck off the shore of Indonesia's Java island Saturday, the United States Geological Survey said, yet no wave cautioning was given. 

The shudder hit at a profundity of 82 kilometers (50 miles), around 45 kilometers southwest of Malang city in East Java. 

There were no prompt reports of setbacks, yet the quake shook Malang, a city of a few million individuals. 

"It was quite solid and went for quite a while," occupant Ida Magfiroh told AFP. 

"Everything was influencing." 

Indonesia encounters continuous seismic and volcanic action because of its situation on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where structural plates impact. 

In 2018, a 7.5-extent shake and an ensuing wave in Palu on Sulawesi island left in excess of 4,300 individuals dead or missing. 

On December 26, 2004, a staggering 9.1-size quake struck off the bank of Sumatra and set off a torrent that slaughtered 220,000 all through the locale, incorporating around 170,000 in Indonesia. 

It was one of the deadliest catastrophic events in written history.
