Death toll is now 70



PADANG, Indonesia — A powerful earthquake killed at least 70 people in western Indonesia on Tuesday and left hospitals overwhelmed with scores of injured, officials said.

The number of dead was expected to rise as a result of the magnitude 6.3 quake on Sumatra island, which was followed by powerful aftershocks.

The quake was felt hundreds of miles away in Singapore, where some office buildings were evacuated, and in neighboring Malaysia.

"Women were crying out in terror. We all just fled as quickly as we could," said Alpion, a welder in the seaside town of Padang. Along with thousands of others, he was fleeing to higher ground, fearing a possible tsunami. Authorities said the quake did not cause any tidal activity.

Yes BBC confirms at least 70 dead now as well:


The US Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 6.3, and was centred near the town of Padang.

There are fears the death toll may be higher as communications with remote regions have been cut.



The quake was also felt in western coastal areas of Malaysia, and several tall buildings in Singapore's business district swayed slightly due to the tremor.


This is quite amazing, as it wasn't particularly large even. Large enough to do damage though.

At least it wasn't larger, we know the region is quite capable of such a quake.

I heard about this when I got home, I was in cleveland on buisness monday, working outside until about 11pm. I didn't even notice it. Strange.

Seems like things are heating up to the big showdown of celestial alignment hmm?
