    Default 8.7 earthquake hits Indonesia

    A magnitude 8.7 earthquake has struck off the coast of Indonesia, according to the United States Geological Survey.

    The quake struck off the west coast of northern Sumatra.

    The USGS says the quake was centred 33 kilometres beneath the ocean floor around 495km from Aceh's provincial capital

    A tsunami watch is currently in place across the Indian Ocean region.

    It lasted for about 4 mins. Bugger that. A 30 second one is long enough.

    The Indonesian government said there were no reports of casualties or significant damage from the initial earthquake, but several strong aftershocks were reported in the afternoon and early evening. The largest measured 8.2, the United States Geological Survey said.
    An 8.2 for a after shock? thats freakin scary stuff. Being many miles away eases it a bit but after dealing with these Chch quakes, I really feel sorry for them.
