Description
Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at 07.18.35 WIB, the South Indian Ocean region of Bali-Nusa Tenggara was rocked by a tectonic earthquake. The BMKG analysis results show that the initial information on this earthquake has the power M = 6 which is then updated to M = 5.8. The epicenter of the earthquake is located at 9.08 LS and 114.55 BT coordinates, or precisely located at sea at a distance of 80 km south of Kota Negara, Jembrana Regency, Bali Province at a depth of 104 km.

Southern earthquake in Java-Bali-Nusa Tenggara, taking into account the location of the epicenter and the depth of the hypocenter, it seems that a moderate depth earthquake is caused by the subduction activity of the Indo-Australian Plate which infiltrated beneath the Eurasian Plate. The results of the analysis of the source mechanism indicate that this earthquake was produced by rock deformation with a sloping thrust fault mechanism.

The earthquake was reported to be felt in the MMI Badung area, MMI Nusa Dua IV-V, Denpasar, Mataram, Central Lombok, West Lombok IV MMI, Banyuwangi, Karangkates, Sumbawa, East Lombok, North Lombok III MMI, Jember, Lumajang II- III MMI . Until now there have been no reports of damage caused by the earthquake. The modeling results show that the earthquake did not have a tsunami potential
