Strong earthquake shakes central Indonesia

A strong magnitude 6.1 earthquake rattled the Java region of central Indonesia on Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The epicenter of the quake was 39 kilometers (24 miles) south-southeast of Adipala.
An earthquake of this magnitude can cause a lot of damage if it hits a very populated area, according to a Michigan Tech seismology website.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.
