Magnitude 7.4 Indonesia earthquake triggers tsunami warning

A powerful 7.4-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Indonesia on Tuesday triggering a tsunami warning and sending residents fleeing from their homes and buildings.

A family video shows glass doors shaking and children of the household hiding underneath a desk before running down the staircase to evacuate.

The earthquake happened around 10.30 local time on Tuesday in the Flores Sea. It affected the East Nusa Tenggara region, officials said.

No injuries or major damage has been reported yet but locals said they felt large tremors.

Tsunami warnings for the area were lifted later on Tuesday.

Videos on social media showed people in the city of Makassar running out of shops and buildings. Others showed dozens of people running down the corridors of a hospital in the district of Bantaeng, as a man's voice in the background is heard shouting "An earthquake in the hospital."
