JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia's geophysics agency says a tsunami is possible after a strong earthquake struck east of Sulawesi island.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake which hit Friday at a depth of 17 kilometers (10.5 miles) had a magnitude of 6.8.

The epicenter of the quake is far from the city of Palu, which was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami in September.
