A large earthquake has struck south-west of Bali, Indonesia.

The magnitude 6.1 earthquake hit at 12:18am on Tuesday (local time) at a depth of 91.6km.

It was 40km south of Kendalrejo in East Java. There has been no tsunami warning issued, nor any reports of casualties. 

Users on Twitter reported seeing parts of nearby structures crumbling.

Twitter user Marc van Voorst said the quake felt like a "heavy truck or train passing by at close range".

Despite his hotel shaking quite a bit, he said there was no panic.

According to Indonesia's meteorology and geophysics agency, the quake was also felt in other cities on the neighbouring islands of Lombok and Java.

There have been several strong earthquakes nearby recently, with a magnitude 6.4 earthquake striking off the coast of Papua New Guinea on Monday and a 6.6 shake off Western Australia on Sunday.
