Earthquake In Indonesia

Apr 11, 2012 in ,

Just heard about the 8.7-magnitude earthquake that hit the west coast of Indonesia. It looks pretty bad, and some of my relatives in Penang felt it. A tsunami watch has been issued to all the countries in the Indian Ocean:

INDONESIA / INDIA / SRI LANKA / AUSTRALIA / MYANMAR / THAILAND /
MALDIVES / UNITED KINGDOM / MALAYSIA / MAURITIUS / REUNION /
SEYCHELLES / PAKISTAN / SOMALIA / OMAN / MADAGASCAR / IRAN /
UAE / YEMEN / COMORES / BANGLADESH / TANZANIA / MOZAMBIQUE /
KENYA / CROZET ISLANDS / KERGUELEN ISLANDS / SOUTH AFRICA /
SINGAPORE

India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka have officially issued tsunami warnings. Thailand has issued evacuation orders for those along the coast.

Please stay safe, everyone. I'll be praying for everyone affected, or in danger.

UPDATE: CNN is currently (6:04pm, +8GMT) having live coverage.
