Powerful 6.1 aftershock hits Pagai Island again

Earthquake Report comment :
Powerful aftershock with a preliminary epicenter at the eastern shores of Mentawai Island South Pagai.
GDACS has just issued a GREEN earthquake alert for this earthquake = very limited chance on damage and/or injuries.
Earthquake-report.com takes this aftershock very serious, as the epicenter is under the island and as eventually earlier damaged buildings from the main quake might collapse. Calculated models from USGS are expecting again a MMI of VI to VII.
