A Tsunami has just hit the west Java shore in Indonesia following the M7 earthquake (discussed here www.abovetopsecret.com... ) according to eyewitnesses. The eyewitnesses also reported "there are bodies floating in the water".

This was just reported on CNN and there is no link to any source on the net yet.

CNN now has an early report on their site.

www.cnn.com...

Again, the latest report from their live TV broadcast on American Morning is that it was a magnatude 9 quake and now a second strong aftershock has just happened.

*edit*

They are now back to claiming it was a M7 quake.

Where are you getting that it is a 9 mag quake? According to your link it's a 7.2 which is what i've been hearing all morning?

Read above.

The death toll is now at 86 with thousands more displaced due to their loss of home.

news.bbc.co.uk... - BBC article on it.

news.yahoo.com... - Yahoo article on it, Yahoo has it as a M7.7 quake.

www.cnn.com... - Newest CNN article.


Indonesian radio interviewed a witness named Teti who said the giant waves -- as high as trees -- damaged homes and other buildings, and she reported seeing at least three dead bodies.

An entire hotel was also washed away, Teti said, and everyone ran for higher ground.

The reason for some mentioning it as 7.7 can be due of the following source:
EMSC, where it is stated that the quake had a magnitude 7.7 on the Richter Scale.




Parameters
Magnitude Mw 7.7
Region SOUTH OF JAWA, INDONESIA
Date time 2006-07-17 at 08:19:23.5 UTC
Location 9.24 S ; 107.36 E
Depth 10 km
