Earthquakes 2016

Huge one in Indonesia. USG initial report says 8.2, while average given is 7.9 to 8.

Oh no. Any news about a tsunami? The outcome of the 2004 one was just awful.

Nothing so far, which is bad already. Depth was only 10 kilometers off the coast of Sumatra.

Australian ABC news are reporting that, ‘The USGS said there was a “low likelihood of casualties and damage”.’ So fingers crossed.

Yep. Nearest village is 700 kms away. Let’s hope so!

In other news we just had a 4.2, Yilan.

Bump? :ponder:

A very quick sharp jolt.

Any news about last night’s jolt?

EDIT: Apparently a 4.5 quake centered in Yilan County, at 2:11 am this morning.
