A terrifying 7.3-magnitude quake has sparked panic after it rocked the remote Maluku islands in eastern Indonesia today. The country's meteorology agency (BMKG) said there is little threat of a tsunami.

There were no immediate reports of damages or casualties in the quake.

In the town of Labuha, one of the closest to the epicentre, panicked residents took to motorcycles in a bid to flee to higher ground, according to an AFP photographer in town when the natural disaster hit. "Some people who live near the ocean are starting to move to higher ground", he told Reuters by phone.

Indonesia is situated on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, which is frequently hit by earthquakes and sometimes accompanying tsunamis. It's also home to almost 452 volcanoes.

The province was also hit by a 6.9-magnitude tremor last week.

Scared residents were seen fleeing through the streets and heading for high ground, though no tsunami warning was issued after the land-based quake struck.

A 5.8 magnitude aftershock followed around 30 minutes after, the agency website showed.

The quake occurred almost 103 miles southeast of the provincial capital of Ternate and Subar added that several hundred people fled to shelter in government offices and mosques.

With a population of around 1 million, North Maluku is one of Indonesia's least populous provinces.

Just previous year a tsunami killed thousands in the area of Sulawesi, but Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency said this quake won't have the potential to cause a tsunami.

On December 26, 2004, a devastating 9.1-magnitude quake struck off the coast of Sumatra and triggered a tsunami that killed 220,000 throughout the region, including around 170,000 in Indonesia.
