Not good for the people there, the roaring of seas are coming, the bible mentions them as signs of the end times. I won't say this is it but I will say that it makes people look into it if they have to. Some people are sign watchers they keep their eyes open for these events, even if it does not happen its there in case it does for the people who will experience it so its best to update or repeat it.

"And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

It seems more than likely there will be something going on, there is more sea space in that region and I guess it will ripple more. If the same quake happenned at Sumatra I doubt it would have the same effect as many quakes after 2004 of around that magnetude did nothing.

Or they are just after shocks, has the exact location been established, is it the sea bed?

Yes, very true

But a tsunmai is more dependant on the type of shift that occurs with the tectonic plates. On many occasions no Tsunami will be generated....on this occasion though its now been confirmed

All these Earth quakes reminds me of the expanding Earth theory. Maybe a sudden expansion has happened in the past and it's being mixed up with a pole shift.
