Indonesia has issued a tsunami warning after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 hit off the eastern coast of the island.
There are no reports of injuries or damages so far but this magnitude of a quake has the ability to trigger a tsunami.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit early Thursday and was centered 200 miles (327 kilometers) northeast of Manado, a town on Sulawesi island. It says it had a depth of about 20 miles (30 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor.
Indonesia is located on the 'Ring of Fire', which is an area with a lot of seismic upheaval.
