A tectonic earthquake measured on 5.7 Ritcher Scale on Sunday night hit Nangroe Aceh Darussalam province but did not trigger any tsunamis, the Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMG) has said.

BMG's official in Aceh Besar Tri Deni said on Monday that the earthquake's epicenter was 88 kilometer south west of Banda Aceh and was 30 kilo meter above sea level.

"The earthquake can be felt by several regions in the province, including Meulaboh, Pidie, Bireun and Aceh Selatan," he told Antara news agency on Monday.

Musliadi, one of the residents, said on Monday that he and his family members were immediately going out from their homes as soon as they had heard of the earthquake.

"The earthquake was strong and it was quite long too," he said.

Thus far, no casualties have been reported yet.
