Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) reported a magnitude 4.4 quake in Indonesia near Meulaboh, Kabupaten Aceh Barat, Aceh, only 12 minutes ago.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
