A strong earthquake has struck Bali, shaking the resort island but not triggering any tsunami alarms.
The shock came shortly after 10am AEST.
It was centred off the coast of the Indonesian archipellago, about 26km south of Denpasar.
Preliminary measurements of its intensity vary, ranging from 6.4 through to 5.5.
Witnesses report feeling a strong shake lasting some 20 seconds.
The violent shock was reportedly felt by up to 3 million inhabitants on and around the island.
The US Geological Service’s automated assessment places the risk of fatalities and economic loss as being low.
