The quake could cause a "widely destructive tsunami"This from the Beeb: Huge quake hits Indonesian coast
- Power blackouts and major panic ensued, local officials told AFP news agency.
- The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quake could cause a "widely destructive tsunami" and it was felt as far away as Malaysia.
- The quake was felt across the region with people in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, some 500km away, evacuating high-rise buildings and running out into the streets.
- Stupid security guards in Singapore didn't feel a thing (ok I added that bit myself).
Of course there won't be another Tsunami because 10,000 year events only happen once every 10,000 years right?
