Heavy Earthquake Hits Indonesia, Dozens Dead
A powerful earthquake killed at least 35 people and injured hundreds on Indonesia’s island of Sulawesi on Friday, January 15, trapping several under rubble and unleashing dozens of aftershocks.

It was gathered that, thousands of frightened residents fled their homes for higher ground when the magnitude 6.2-quake struck 6 km (3.73 miles) northeast of the town of Majene, at a depth of just 10 km, shortly before 1.30 a.m.

The quake and aftershocks damaged more than 300 homes and two hotels, as well as flattening a hospital and the office of a regional governor.
