It's been 2 1/2 hours now since the quake, I doubt there will be a Tsunami as it would have made landfall by now if there was one.

Reports are that this was a 7.2,

local coasts are already being evacuated in case, This is almost the same place that was wrecked by the tsunami

CNN





There is a possibility of a destructive local tsunami in the Indian Ocean," the agency said in a written statement about the earthquake, which struck at 12:02 p.m. ET.

In an hour or less, a tsunami could hit all coasts of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India and, in Indonesia, the Indian Ocean coast and Malacca coast of Sumatra.

Those charts, Sanc....why are ones from all over the world solid black? Is it that they are just measuring the indian quake, but at different time intervals due to distance?

stu', maybe a software/sensor type deal.

But, large areas of high graphs are not good.

There are some warnings.

Thailand issues tsunami alert.
July 25, 2005

THAI authorities have issued a tsunami warning for the southwest coast including Phuket island after a major earthquake in India's Nicobar Islands.

"There is a possibility of a tsunami and if it happens it will affect Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, Ranong, Satun and Trang provinces," the National Disaster Warning Centre's director Plodprasop Surasawadi said in an emergency broadcast.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damages. No tsunami has been reported. The islands are in the Indian Ocean between India and Thailand.

The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., reported an earthquake of 7.0 magnitude hit near the Nicobar Islands. The quake was centered about 80 miles west of Misha, Nicobar Island.

The earthquake was of magnitude 7.2, struck at 9:12 p.m. and was centered in Nicobar, said I. B. A. Rao, a duty officer in New Delhi's Meteorology Department.

The quake also jolted the southern Indian state of Madras.

"There is nothing to worry about," India's Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal said.

Looks like Thailand was just being cautious.

Did anyone listen to the hydrophone array recording of the Dec 26th quake? That is the first time I have ever heard an earthquake and considering the hydrophone array was a long way away from the quake site it was really something to hear it in such clarity. An article about the recording can be read at: www.ldeo.columbia.edu...

and the actual recording can be heard at:
www.ldeo.columbia.edu...

What I found most unusual was the length of the thing. I was once stationed out on the Aelutian Islands and experienced constant earthquakes while I was there, but they generally only lasted a few seconds--this thing goes on for 8 minutes.
