8.2 earthquake registered off Sumatra

Magnitude is nearly as large as tsunami quake

Updated: 12:02 p.m. ET March 28, 2005

A large earthquake was registered Monday off Indonesia's Sumatra Island, the U.S. Geological Survey reported, describing it as a "great earthquake" with a magnitude of 8.2 on the Richter scale.


The USGS advised officials in the area to move people inland, and Thai officials were among the first to issue a tsunami warning for the Andaman Sea.

No reports of injury or damage had been received from the region. The Dec. 26 quake that launched the massive tsunami was a 9.0, the USGS said.

Monday's quake epicenter was just off the northern Sumatra coast and between two smaller islands, and located at 18.6 miles underground. It occured at around 11 p.m. local time.

The article on Fox says it was a 8.2 quake off of Sumatra again, however this one appears to have been in "shallow" water, so they didn't anticipate as much of a destructive wave.

By the way...

8.2 earthquake registered off Sumatra

Magnitude is nearly as large as tsunami quakeAn 8.2 isn't really "nearly as large as" a 9.0. It's a huge mother****er, but IIRC, it's eight times smaller than a 9.0.
