Indonesia has strong quake, aftershock: No reports of major damage

  • 8.6 the magnitude of a powerful earthquake to hit off the coast of the Indian Ocean Wednesday
  • 8.2 the magnitude of an aftershock; neither quake caused significant damage as of yet source

» “The only problem we had was people panicking”: In Indonesia, one of the countries most damaged by 2004 earthquake and tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands, the quake stirred up terrible memories of that incident. Indonesia even called a tsunami warning. However, this quake was hundreds of miles off the coast and seismologists say it rattled horizontally, making a tsunami unlikely. Hours after the initial warning, there was no noticeable rise in sea level. Indonesia is however not out of the woods yet — the 8.2 aftershock was only one of the post-quake rattles in the region.
