JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- A magnitude 6.9 undersea earthquake rocked Indonesia's Sumatra island on Saturday, triggering panic across a large swathe of the region.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The Indonesian Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said it was unlikely that the quake would trigger a tsunami.

The temblor was centered 50 kilometers (30 miles) southwest of the city of Padang on west Sumatra.
