They are now saying this was probably a lateral movement quake instead of a thrust quake.

That would be a good thing if so, its not the kind of plate movement that would create a huge tsunami hopefully.

colleagues of mine in bangalore, india are reporting feeling tremors there, it must have been some shaker to feel it from that distance.

Electric power has been lost in Banda Aceh

Some news right now:


Indonesia's disaster management agency said power was down in Aceh province and people were gathering on high ground as sirens warned of the danger.

"The electricity is down, there are traffic jams to access higher ground. Sirens and Koran recitals from mosques are everywhere," said Sutopo, spokesman for the agency.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a tsunami watch was in effect for the entire Indian Ocean.

The quake was felt as far away as the Thai capital, Bangkok, and in southern India, residents said. Hundreds of office workers in the Indian city of Bangalore left their buildings, workers there said.

Really? Could you provide some evidence of that?

Cocos Islands are putting out a no tsunami threat and that is not so far away.

Take a closer look my friend. Most of those are seismic shock affecting either the instrument or the transmission. None of them show water movement around Australia. I am looking at the rest.
