At least three people died when a 6.0-magnitude earthquake shook the East Java and Bali regions of Indonesia on Thursday morning, a government spokesman said.

The epicenter was about 25 miles northeast of Sumberanyar at a depth of about six miles, the United States Geological Service reported.

The quake comes just two weeks after Sulawesi, in eastern Indonesia, suffered a 7.5-magnitude earthquake followed by a tsunami.

More than 2,000 people have been confirmed killed by the natural disasters. Many more are believed to have died, been buried under soil, swept away by waves or trapped in a tangle of crushed buildings that will take months, if not years, to clear.

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the spokesman for Indonesia’s disaster management agency, wrote on Twitter that no tsunami was expected from the latest quake.
