Wow this one is close to the coast!! Let's hope and pray we do not see a repeat of the boxing day 2004 Tsunami or more importantly a repeat of the Tsunami that hit Japan!

However reports on TV are already saying that this will be worse than the 2004 ''Boxing Day'' Tsunami and that many airports in Indonesia are already being closed.

Another report is saying that the Earthquake was felt as far away as India and Sri Lanka!

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in affected area's.

**Panic in Banda Aceh as massive Indonesia quake triggers tsunami watch**

BANDA ACEH, INDONESIA—A tsunami watch was issued for countries across the Indian Ocean after a massive earthquake hit waters off Indonesia on Wednesday, triggering widespread panic as residents along coastlines fled to high ground in cars and on the backs of motorcycles.

Some were screamed “God is great” as they poured from their homes. Others, separated from relatives, cried as they ran frantically through the streets.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 8.6-magnitude quake was centred 33 kilometres beneath the ocean floor around 435 kilometres from Aceh’s provincial capital.

The tremor was felt in Singapore, Thailand, Bangladesh, Malaysia and India. High-rise apartments and offices on Malaysia’s west coast shook for at least a minute.
