A very strong earthquake measuring M7.3 on the Richter scale was registered in Molucca Sea, Indonesia on November 15, 2014. There are no people living within 100 km radius. The quake struck an estimated depth of 34 miles below the earth’s surface.

The population in this region resides in structures that are vulnerable to earthquake shaking, though some resistant structures exist. Recent earthquakes in this area have caused secondary hazards such as tsunamis that might have contributed to losses. A 9 cm wave reached the island of Jailolo but caused no damage, according to Indonesia's meteorological agency.
