Okay, looks like this one didn't cause a tsunami. There are no reports of major damage so far, either.

A powerful earthquake has struck the Indonesian island of Java, shaking tower blocks in the capital of Jakarta and causing people to run from their homes in panic.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage from the quake which the U.S. Geological Survey measured at 7.5 on the Richter scale. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no danger of a tidal wave.

Sure does seem more than normal bigger earthquakes happening in the Pacific these days. Hopefully these are not a prelude to even larger ones.

You are right, we can't help but notice the increased incidence of big quakes in the South Pacific.

This one was too deep to cause a tsunami, according to reports. If this is indicative of sublimation, we may see increased volcanic activity in the region soon.
