  • Quake - are you guys ok?

    Just heard about it...

    Just saw it on the USGS website - seems like a pretty big one and fairly shallow, but no tsunami warning issued, thank goodness.

        Yes, there is a tsunami warning. Got it through sms warning by the French embassy.

            For where? My husband is in Jambi. Hopefully that is safe.

            USGS and NOAA show no warning, so I am confused.

                Yes, I can read a map! But it is still scary. Especially as he is not answering his phone and the media says some people have been killed.

                BTW, tsunamis can affect the other side of islands as well. Fortunately Jambi isn't coastal, so it shouldn't matter. But waves propagate in funny ways.

                  The warning is for West Sumatra.

                    According to what I'm hearing on my social media, the warning has been lifted.

                    I'm quite sure my husband is fine, but I wish he'd answer his damn phone!

                      TVRI showed a warning and E100 also http://m.suarasurabaya.net/kelanakot...7mp52016168166

                      it's been an hour, is it already safe?

                        Phones are probably jammed, Puspa. He'll be okay.

                          Sorry if that seems flippant. I want him to be okay, is all. And I feel sorry for you having the stress of waiting for info.

                            Not flippant at all, Happyman. And he is okay ... we just Skyped. (He was out to dinner and his phone died. Had no idea about the quake as they did not feel it.)
