Want to update the title here? There was also a 4.7 off the coast of Guatemala/El Salvador borders, and a 5.3 off the coast of Peru. Both within 3 minutes of each other, and just 2 hours before this 7.3.

This thing is deep but pretty much shook the crap out of the seafloor. Many many aftershocks will happen.

This site says the depth is more shallow, but judging by how strong people felt it I'm going with the 20 miles down scenario.



PRELIMINARY EARTHQUAKE PARAMETERS ---------------------------------
* MAGNITUDE 7.3
* ORIGIN TIME 0232 UTC NOV 15 2014
* COORDINATES 1.9 NORTH 126.7 EAST

* TSUNAMI WAVES REACHING 0.3 TO 1 METERS ABOVE THE TIDE LEVEL ARE POSSIBLE FOR SOME COASTS OF INDONESIA.

Sea levels rising one meter are a serious concern...Three feet of fast moving water can do a lot of damage..

This site calls it tsunami warning




A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 has hit off the Moluccas in Indonesia, the US Geological Survey says, and a tsunami warning has been issued for the area near the quake.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said hazardous tsunamis were possible within 300km of the quake's epicentre. The centre said there was no danger of a Pacific-wide tsunami.

The quake was measured at a depth of 47km, with the epicentre 134km northwest of Ternate.

Aftershock




Magnitude 5.9 earthquake strikes 37 miles south of Molibagu, Indonesia - @USGS

The undersea quake struck at a depth of 46 kilometres (28 miles), 154 kilometres northwest of Kota Ternate, the USGS said.

"Tsunami waves are possible for coasts located within 300 kilometres," said the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

The centre said tsunami waves could hit parts of Indonesia, as well the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan and islands in the South Pacific.

Tsunami waves between 30 centimetres (12 inches) and one metre could hit parts of Indonesia, said the centre, while waves below 30 centimetres were forecast for the coasts of the Philippines, the centre said.

"We have issued an early tsunami warning," an official from Indonesia's meteorological agency told AFP.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.

A huge undersea quake in 2004 triggered a tsunami that killed more than 170,000 people in Aceh province, on western Sumatra island, and tens of thousands more in other countries with coasts on the Indian Ocean.



Thinking of the people in this area. Hope they are alright. It seems to always strike areas that are poverty stricken and highly populated. So, fingers crossed. But a lot of "ring of fire" activity.

A strong undersea earthquake hit eastern Indonesia on Saturday, triggering a small tsunami and some panic but no casualties or major damage.
