In danish tv they are saying that most like there will be no tzunami, as the earthplates have moved horizontally and not vertical as 'needed'!

 

And apparently it should have hit Indonesia by now, and no news about that!

PM The Viking for info!

PM Lukas7 for Ladyboy info!

Felt it here down in Georgetown Penang as well!

Just back from the beach standing in the tub taking a shower

when the whole hotel started to swing back and forth!

Surprised me it lasted so long a couple of minutes or so!

There was a few seconds of pre-shake in Batu Ferringhi

earlier in the day too.

Funny is I jokingly thought that this might be the start of a big one!

I felt a smaller one in Patong a few days ago as well.

 

Unfortunately TV Channels at my hotel (Mingood), only shows TV-soaps!

Not even BBC, I saw it on a Swedish Internet Newspaper (Aftonbladet).

 

Windows tainted as well with no views, but workers are still hammering at a construction-site next door so no reason to panic.

Being on 4th floor I guess I'd be OK though.

 

Heard that they are panicking in Phuket though with people running for the hills and rooftops!

Seems the Quake didn't trigger a tsunami:

 

Jakarta - Indonesia's president said there were no reports of casualties or damage from a huge earthquake off Aceh province on Wednesday, with no threat from a tsunami although an alert for a giant wave remained in place.

 

"There is no tsunami threat although we are on alert," said President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at a joint news conference with visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron, who said Britain was standing ready to help if needed.

 

"The situation in Aceh is under control, there's a little bit of panic but people can go to higher ground," Yudhoyono said, adding that he had ordered a disaster relief team to fly to Aceh, which was devastated by a 2004 tsunami.

 

That's a bit of news I'm actually happy to hear.

It ain't over yet!

Never underestimate- that was the message of the Phuket Tsanami.

Might be worth seeking higher ground for a few hours until threat passes.

For those who are interested there is a four part you tube of the Phuket Tsnami.

Although this quake is smaller.

Tsunami Warning

 

Thailand's Andaman coastal provinces on tsunami alert

 

 

(The Nation Source)

 

TSUNAMI ALERT.jpg

Foreigners evacuate to higher ground following tsunami warning at Patong Beach, Phuket.

 

Thailand's disaster centre on Wednesday put provinces along the Andaman coastline on watch for a possible tsunami after n 8.7 magnitude earthquake struck off Indonesia's Aceh province.

 

 

People living in provinces along Andaman provinces were advised to evacuate to higher grounds.

National Diaster Center's director Somsak Kaosuwan said "We are still monitoring the situation but we’ve told the Andaman provinces to be on alert," he said.

Meanwhile Disaster Expert Dr Seri Supaprathit

The Information and Communications Technology Ministry has issued an urgent warning for people living on Andaman coastal areas in southern Thailand to evacuate following a 8.9-Richter-scale quake in Indonesia.

The US Geological Survey said the epicentre at a depth of 33 kilometers was at the west coast of northern Sumatra in Indonesia at 3:45 pm Bangkok time.

A tsunami watch was issued for countries ranging from Indonesia toThailand, India, Australia, the Seychelles, Somalia, Oman and SouthAfrica, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

The US Geological Survey earlier put the quake at magnitude 8.9.

The Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department has issued an urgent warning for people living on the coast of six southern provinces to evacuate, the areas would be hit by tsunami starting from 5:09 pm.

Anusorn Kaewkangwal said residents of Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Satun, Krabi and Trang were told to clear the coastal areas before 5 pm.

He said Koh Miang of Phang Nga would be the first to be hit by tsunami at 5:09 pm.

Then, the giant waves would hit Karon and Patong beaches in Phuket and Phi Phi isalnd in Krabi and Jao Mai and Paliang beaches in Trant. Ranong and Satun would be hit by the giant waves later, Anusorn said.

Meanwhile tourists and workers at the Patong Beach urgently evacuated to higher grounds after the tsunami sirens at the beach sounded.

From the Bangkok Post (http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/288446/tsunami-evacuation-ordered)

 

Tsunami evacuation ordered

 

The Disaster Warning Centre issued an order for the people in the six provinces on the western coast of Thaland to evacuate to safe areas after an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.6 on the Richter scale rocked the western coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

 

 

 

It was initially reported at 8.9 and then downgraded.

The order, following a warning from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre, was aimed particularly at people in tourist provinces of Phuket, Krabi and Phangnga, which are high risk, to evacuate to high ground far away from the sea shore.

The other three provinces on the western coast are Satun, Trang and Songkhla, but they are at less risk.

The massive earthquake was felt in many parts of Thailand including Bangkok.

Telephone signals were reported to have been disrupted in some areas.

Smith Dhammasaroj, former chief of the Meteorological Department, said a tsunami could possibly hit the six provinces on the western coast this evening.

Somsak Khaosuwan, director of the National Disaster Warning Centre, said waves about one metre high would possibly reach Phuket about 5.40pm.

For the sake of safety, people living along the western coastline are advised to evacuate immediately, he said.

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand insisted that the Egat dams remain strong following the strong earthquake.

Felt it here down in Georgetown Penang as well!

 

Sweet! We're in the same town; I'm over in the Evergreen hotel. How is Batu Ferringhi? Heard that's where the local girls go looking for foriegners, just haven't made it over there yet. Maybe tomorrow. Damn beers here are expensive and looks mainly like a couples tourist spot. Not many singles or groups of just girls running around over this way.

 

News is basically cancelling all the tsunami watches. Guess it was only a few cm's, and no one is reporting much damage and no deaths, so wasn't bad.

From what I heard the scandinavian tourists where evacuated but they are now back to the hotels, so hopefully the worse is over now.
