Indonesia quake

INDONESIA – A deadly earthquake rocked the northern tip of Indonesia’s Sumatra Island overnight.

The 6.2 magnitude quake has killed 22 people so far and more than 200 are injured.

Rescuers are still working to reach people stuck in the rubble.

Thousands of buildings across the area were damaged.

At least two aftershocks, magnitude 5.2 and 5.3, followed the first tremor.

This is the same area a 9.1 magnitude quake hit in 2004, killing 200,000 people.
