Finding Faults in Bali

Bali Rumbles with Another Mild Earthquake on November 4, Just Two Weeks after Last Shake on October 13, 2011

(11/6/2011) The people of Bali were momentarily shocked when a 5.2 earthquake shook the island at 10:59 p.m. on Friday night, November 4, 2011.

Substantially less intense that the 6.8 earthquake which struck off Bali’s southern shore on October 13, 2011, [See: Bali Shaken by Earthquake],  the most recent event was centered about 67 kilometers southeast of Nusa Dua, Bali at a depth of around 70 kilometers.

Relatively mild in comparison to the quake two weeks earlier, the latest quake was felt across all of southern Bali, including Ubud, a fact confirmed by Twitter reports within moments of the event. Bali Post also confirms the earthquake was felt in the capital of Lombok, West Sumbawa and in Banyuwangi, East Java.

While some panicked, running from their homes, there are no preliminary reports of injury or significant property damages connected with the latest earthquake.

There was no risk of a tsunami associated with the moderate seismic event.
