A powerful undersea earthquake rattled western Indonesia on Wednesday, geological agencies said, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The 6.4-magnitude quake was centered 130 kilometers southwest of Padang, a town on Sumatra island still recovering from a series of strong tremors that killed nearly two dozen people earlier this month, the US Geological Survey reported.
