GOLDEN, Colorado —

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-6.1 earthquake has been recorded in Indonesia.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has no warning in effect.

The Geological Survey report says the quake hit 197 miles (318 kilometers) east of Dili, East Timor, just after 1730 GMT.

The quake's depth was recorded at 11 miles (18 kilometers).

Indonesia is located on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
