I was just curiuos. Does anybody know if the tsunami's affected Australia at all? I havent and information from there but Africa is ever farther away so...
Thankfully Australia was not physically affected, although we share the greif and shock at this tradgety as the rest of the world.
A magnitude 9.0 earthquake releases energy equivalent to 32,000 megatons, or about 3,200 nuclear bombs the size dropped on Nagasaki, Japan.
