The U.S. Geological Survey said the strongest quake had a magnitude of 7.5 and was centered at a depth of 6 miles (10 kilometers) about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northeast of the central Sulawesi town of Donggala.

The meteorology and geophysics agency issued an early tsunami warning for people in Central Sulawesi and West Sulawesi provinces, asking people to evacuate to higher ground. Other official agencies did not issue tsunami alerts following the temblor.

A strong tsunami triggered by a magnitude 7.5 natural disaster has hit a coastal Indonesian city, officials say.

"Stay away from damaged buildings", Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesperson for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, said in a televised interview.

Lisa Soba Palloan, a resident of Toraja, around 175 km south of Palu, said locals felt several quakes on September 28. It was followed by numerous strong aftershocks including one of magnitude 6.7.

The Southeast Asian archipelago nation lies on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and numerous world's volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.

Last month, a series of earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Lombok, killing hundreds of people - the biggest on 5 August killed more than 460.

More than 600,000 people live in Donggala and Palu.

In 2004, an quake off the northern Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered a tsunami across the Indian Ocean, killing 226,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia.
