“Yes, the tremor was felt in three other districts. This earthquake has no tsunami potential,” said Iman Faturahman
A Denpasar resident ‘Khania’ claimed to have felt the shock as she was lying in her bed.
“I was shocked, because I felt the earthquake. Then I ran out of my room to make sure everything was ok,” Khania said.
BMKG appealed to the public to remain calm.
“Make sure official information is only sourced from BMKG which is distributed through official communication channels that have been verified,”
