7.8 Mag Earthquake Jolts Northern Sumatra

Last Edited: April 6, 2010, 7:11 pm

A 7.8 mag earthquake jolted Northern Sumatra at 6:15 pm Eastern.

Quake depth was 46 km.  No further news available.  I think I'm one of the first to report it!  Can't find any news yet.

Update 6:52:  CNN just reported it.  There's a local tsunami warning for Indonesia.

Entry #217

Pretty proud of my reporting there. Zero news stories about it on Google when I posted. I just happened to go to the USGS site right after it happened.

Appears this is part of the (metaphysical) predicted activity increase in the Pacific Rim. Hope no lives are lost.

Thanks, konane...yes lots of activity in the ring of fire...I'm concerned about L.A. after the Baja quake and the quantity of aftershocks. Too close to the San Andreas fault for comfort.
