Just breaking on CNN. No further details available currently.


JAKARTA (AFP) — A 7.2-magnitude quake struck at sea to the northwest of Manokwari in Indonesia's West Papua province early Sunday, the geophysics agency said in a text message alert, warning also of a tsunami.

The tremor, which hit at a shallow depth of 10 kilometres (six miles), struck at 4:43 am (1943 GMT Saturday), about 135 kilometres from Manokwari, Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said.

Wow... any reports of an actual tsunami?


Or is this a "It could lead to one" type of scenario?

It just happened. If you're in the area, stay away from the coast. A tsunami might be on its way.

The guy being interviewed on CNN seemed pretty sure there would not be a tsunami due to the epicenter being on land. Still, better safe than sorry.

There has been 212, thus far on our planet in the past seven days, with no exception to the US continent, "Are there things happening to this magniotude for a reason?"

It's a ramp up to 2012. The cosmic strain on this planet will be
big. Very big. Solar activities ... etc. It won't all happen at once
but there will be warnings ... birth pains ...

Yes!

“Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."

Matthew 24:4-8
