A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck in central Indonesia, the Hong Kong Observatory said Sunday. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The quake, recorded in Hong Kong at 2120 GMT Saturday, was centered 290 kilometers (180 miles) southwest of the city of Manado on Indonesia's central Sulawesi island, the observatory said in a statement. Indonesia is prone to seismic activity because of its location in the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
