No damage or injuries are reported in two strong earthquakes that have struck Indonesia's eastern province of Maluku.

The province is about 16-hundred miles east of Jakarta.

The first quake's magnitude was six-point-four. The second measured six and came seven hours later. Both quakes were centered beneath a seabed.

Indonesia is prone to seismic upheavals due to its location on what is known as the Pacific "Ring of Fire."

On Friday, a magnitude 5.9 quake hit near Banda Aceh, the capital of the tsunami-ravaged Aceh Province.
