JAKARTA (BNO NEWS) -- A powerful earthquake struck off the Indonesian island of Java on early Monday morning, seismologists said, prompting a tsunami warning for some local regions.
The 7.1-magnitude earthquake at 3.06 a.m. local time (2006 GMT Sunday) was centered about 279 kilometers (173 miles) south-southwest of Tasikmalaya on Java. It struck about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) deep, making it a shallow earthquake, according to Indonesia's seismological agency.

This is somewhat interesting. I was listening to a Coast to Coast from last week yesterday and Stan Deyo was being interviewed. As I remember, he said that be believed that based on the information that he looks at, he thought that there would probably be an earthquake in Indonesia, which would then be followed in the not too distant future by "the big one" in the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
We'll have to keep our eyes peeled and see what happens.
