Since the big one in 2005 there have been alot of 6's 7's and even a 8 i think, on the scale. Depends where the quake was located, if its center was out at sea saw where the 9.0 one was last year then they in for a possible tsunami.

According to CNN it was a M9 earthquake with a M6 aftershock.

My guess would be theres going to be a few more aftershocks.

CNN

The quake had a magnitude of 7.2, and was centered 220 miles south of Jakarta in the Indian Ocean, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center Web site.

The quake hit at 3:19 p.m. local time (4:19 a.m. ET).



Still no reports on any damage from the Quake itself,

eye witness reports coming in also



Waves suddenly came and we ran to the hills. Four people from my group are still missing," said a woman who gave her name as Teti, and who said she had been accompanying Dutch tourists when the waves hit.

"Many small hotels were destroyed," she said. "Hotels on the beach front of Pangandaran ... the front parts are hit. Boats have been thrown into hotels," she said.

She told the radio that she saw three dead bodies being collected by residents. Pangandaran is on the south coast of West Java province.

Local police said residents found a corpse on the beach after they returned from higher ground.

"We've heard that there are several victims but so far we have received report of one person killed," First Brigadier Ujang told AFP.

There are still loads of missing and the death tolljust keeps going up,


There are 105 people dead from 10 regencies, 148 people are injured and 127 still missing," said Putu Suryawan, the official at the Indonesian Red Cross disaster centre, adding that 2,875 people had been displaced from their homes


They really are not having much luck out there, with mud slides and other quakes,

Well update today is that over 300 people are dead,



The really sad thing is here that the tsunami warning faliled, officals in jakarta failed to alert Jawa even though they where aware 20 mins before the tsunami hit,




One official told the Guardian they were too busy monitoring the aftershocks of the 7.7-magnitude quake that triggered the tsunami to raise the alarm. The government's science and technology minister, Kusmayanto Kadiman, confirmed today that Indonesia had received bulletins from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii and Japan's meteorological agency after the quake, but "we did not announce them".

Yes, Asala I have read that information too on other sources and find it really amazing and horrible.

In fact, they even said:



Answering reporters' questions as to why no warning was issued on Monday, Vice President Jusuf Kalla claimed there was no need because most people had fled inland after the earthquake, fearing a tsunami.

"After the quake occurred, people ran to the hills ... so in actual fact there was a kind of natural early warning system," he said. However, of dozens of people interviewed by The Associated Press in Pangandaran on Tuesday, only one person said he felt a slight tremor. None said there was a mass movement of people to higher ground before the tsunami, though some residents recognized the danger when they saw the wall of water approaching.

This has no excuse!

In view of this event, I wonder how many coastal towns on Earth are not prepared to broadcast such an alert among tourists and residents when there is a Tsunami warning?

Where it never happened before, I am sure it would be a chaos.

Even the warning test they carried out not long ago, (I think it was May) was just administrative not practice. So we have no idea if warnings would fail.

Thats it, I am never going to that country, I dont care how nice the beaches are.
Theres a warning and nobody is told. So much for the new tsunami warning system
they put in place.
