    Default Gempa bumi - Earthquake Aceh, Sumatra Utara. Today, 8,9 SR!.

    It seems that an earthquake has occured/is occring in Aceh at the moment. 8,5 to 8,9 on the Richter scale and berpotensi tsunami. Anyone has news? It happened at 15:38 WIB today.

    There is still no news on TV and it's a tweet from Republika online.

    They are now calling it 8.7, though all these early measures are subject to revision.

    Link to USGS website, for those 5 members who don't already bookmark it:

    BBC calling it as an initial 8.9. India has also issued an alert.

    According to the US Geological Survey, initial analysis suggests that it won't generate a tsunami.

    Both locally and regionally? I hope that's right. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center that I linked to earlier is still showing high risk, but they haven't updated in a while. Hopefully USGS is ahead of them.
