Bengkulu, Indonesia, September 13, 2007—A woman feeds her daughter near their house after it was destroyed by an 8.4 magnitude earthquake that struck the Indonesian coast of Sumatra Island on Wednesday. (See a map of Indonesia).

The earthquake—the country's strongest this year—caused extensive damage along Sumatra's coast. At least 10 people were killed and more than 50 injured, the Reuters reported.

Wednesday's temblor was followed by a series of strong aftershocks. Repeated tsunami warnings were issued along the coast—one of the regions ravaged by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
