October 23, 2013BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) — A 5.3-magnitude earthquake has struck western Indonesia, killing one villager, injuring two others and damaging dozens of houses. The U.S. Geological Survey said Tuesday’s quake was centered about 19 miles southwest of Reuleuet town in Aceh province, at a depth of 29 miles. Local government officials said a 90-year-old man suffered a heart attack when the temblor struck. Indonesia’s Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said two other villagers were rushed to a nearby hospital with head wounds and broken bones after around 160 houses and buildings were damaged. A massive quake off the coast of Aceh caused a powerful tsunami in 2004 that killed around 230,000 people in a dozen countries. –USA
