(9/19/2009)

As strong an earthquake as anyone can remember in recent memory shook Bali at 7:07 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2009. Measured at 5.8 by the U.S. Geological Survey and 6.4 by Indonesian government sources, the epicenter was located 101 kilometers SSS of Bali's capital of Denpasar at a depth of between 36 and 100 kilometers.

No tsunami warning was issued in connection with this event and the early warning sirens located on Bali's main beaches remained silent.

The quake which aster for perhaps 10-20 seconds was accompanied by a loud rumbling as buildings rattled across Bali's south. Such was the severity of the shake that many people ran outside of buildings. Some structural damage in the form of cracked and crumbled walls were reported, including the partial destruction of a temple gate in Lebih, north of Sanur Beach.

Minor injuries affecting 7 people, including 3 broken bones treated at Bali's main hospital were also reported.

At 10:40 a.m. a second aftershock emanating from approximately the same area and measuring 4.3 made itself felt on Bali.
