A 5.1 Richter scale earthquake struck off shore from Bali at 7:59 pm local time on Friday night, April 15, 2011.
Of short duration lasting only a few seconds, the quake struck at a depth of 25.5 km.
Most residents of Bali's capital city of Denpasar did not notice the quake which measured between a level II and III on the modified Mercalli Intensity Scale with only a few citizens in the capital reporting any movement from the seismic event.
The quake was of not of a sufficient character to foster a tsunami warning. No property damage or injuries were linked to the earthquake.
