There have been no immediate reports of fatalities or damage from the rumble, although officials were still said to be examining the situation.

Mochammad Riyadi, an official at Indonesia’s meteorology and geophysics, said: ““The earthquake was quite strong and shallow, it was felt all the way to Padang, West Sumatra, but there was no threat of a tsunami.”

The quake struck at a depth of 22 miles at 3.08am BST (10.08am local time) around 50 miles west of Bengkulu, but tremors were reportedly felt in Singapore, which is a whopping 368 miles from the Sumatra city.

People in Singapore were quick to take to Twitter to describe the tremor.

Jocelyne Sze tweeted: “Just felt earthquake tremors in Singapore.”

Thaddeus Ong added: “currently experiencing tremors at my home nowwwwwwww. is it indo earthquake big big.”
