TRIBUNBATAM.id -  The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Department (BMKG) said, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake that shaked Jailolo, North Maluku, due to a fault on the Maluku sea plate.

That was said by the Head of the BMKG Earthquake and Tsunami Center, Rahmat Triyono, quoted by Antara on Friday (11/15/2019).

"By observing the location of the epicenter and hypocenter depth, the earthquake that occurred was a type of shallow earthquake. This is due to the deformation or enlargement in the Maluku sea plate," Rahmat said. 

The results of the analysis of the source mechanism, continued Rahmat, showed that the earthquake had a mechanism of upward movement (thrust fault).
