A weak earthquake measuring 4.9 on the Richter scale hit northern Sumatra at 12.02pm following a strong earthquake in the same region this morning.
The Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) said in a statement that the quake with a depth of 10km occurred 87km northwest of Payakumbuh, Indonesia, and 324km southwest of Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
“Based on the assessment, tremors were felt in Klang Valley,” it added.
In a separate statement, MetMalaysia said that the small-magnitude aftershocks from the earthquake that occurred at 9.39am did not pose any tsunami threat to the country.
However, it advised people to seek shelter and to evacuate the building if they experience any tremors.
“The public also needs to remain vigilant to the earthquake information and tsunami warnings issued by MetMalaysia,” it said.
