Oh no - I sure hope they are wrong about a Tsunami - 8.7 and it will be another huge one if it was below the ocean. Prayers up for those folks and I hope that the 2001(?) Tsunami helped prepare them for this.

Aloha Biglook. Just a quick fyi. This hopefully won’t affect you but in case you hear about it, just wanted to give you a heads up. It’s big, it’s shallow and happened about an hour ago but doesn’t look like there’s any possibility of a tsunami heading your way.

Fairly deep at 32 km so that is a good thing - but see that it is in the ocean. Looks about the same fault as the 2001(?) event but further south IIRC.

There’s always a tsunami with an 8+ quake in the ocean. Likely to be ugly again.

Yes - I wasn’t sure if it was in the ocean or not. And i see that I was wrong on the 32km being ‘deep”. Well it is better than some of the shallow ones we have on the west coast, but the 2004 Indian Ocean quake/Tsunami was at 30km. So obviously this could be an almost near repeat of that one (about a 9.0 magnitude).

Wow.

Oh, and it looks to be on the same fault, and perhaps only 100-200km south. As I said, I hope that they learned from 2004. I know sensors were put out in the ocean - but the epicenter being so close to Sumatra that won’t help them.

No tsunami in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, north of epicenter. Silence, as after Boxing Day quake in 2004, from Banda Aceh, western Sumatra.

Tremors were felt in eastern India.

Watching the live reports at the link. They just said the quake was horizontal rather than vertical, minimizing the chances for a tsunami. That’s good news.
No tsunami has hit yet so they may get lucky this time.

PER - PERIOD OF TIME IN MINUTES(MIN) FROM ONE WAVE TO THE NEXT.

NOTE - DART MEASUREMENTS ARE FROM THE DEEP OCEAN AND THEY
ARE GENERALLY MUCH SMALLER THAN WOULD BE COASTAL
MEASUREMENTS AT SIMILAR LOCATIONS.

EVALUATION

SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. IT MAY
ALREADY HAVE BEEN DESTRUCTIVE ALONG SOME COASTS.

BASED ON THESE DATA THE THREAT CONTINUES FOR ALL COASTAL AREAS OF
THE INDIAN OCEAN. FOR THOSE AREAS - WHEN NO MAJOR WAVES HAVE
OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS AFTER THE ESTIMATED ARRIVAL TIME
OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN
LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO
BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE
TO RAPID CURRENTS. AS LOCAL CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE
VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION MUST
BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS
WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL
ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN
SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

If you look just a little bit closer, you'll find that Diego Garcia, located in the Central Indian Ocean at 7°26' South and 72°23' East is part of the Chagos Archipelago, which is British Indian Ocean Territory.
