Major earthquake again rocked Sumatra

Posted: 11 Apr 2012 10:44 PM PDT

Major earthquake again rocked Sumatra, Wednesday, April 11, 2012. When the earth shook, the panic was again felt the people of Aceh, which had experienced the earthquake and tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of people in 2004.

Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency said an earthquake measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale is a potential tsunami. Residents panic, and still scarred by the trauma, then poured into the streets. In haste, they attempted to escape to higher ground, avoiding the possibility of tsunami.
The situation became more dramatic due to the roar of a siren call to prayer echoing chime everywhere, and power outages caused by the earthquake.

One building in downtown Pante Pirak, Banda Aceh, reportedly collapsed in the earthquake which occurred at 15:38 this. A resident said the building collapsed a few seconds after the quake occurred.

But the message is created; there has been no official confirmation of the number of casualties. Catastrophic losses are also unknown.

Not only Aceh

But the earthquake and the panic felt not only the people of Aceh. Tremor was also felt in Medan, North Sumatra; Padang, West Sumatra, and Pekanbaru, Riau.

In Medan, the quake happened a long time. "Vibrations of about three minutes

While in Padang, people are surprised to suddenly run out of homes and buildings. Tsunami warning residents of Padang also cause panic and haste to flee to higher locations.

Evacuation route was crowded with vehicles, so that severe bottlenecks are inevitable.

While in Riau, the earthquake caused the citizens residing in tall buildings thrust out of the building.

Not only in Indonesia, the earthquake also led to 27 countries around the epicenter of the earthquake tsunami alert issued orders.

These countries are Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Myanmar, Thailand, Maldives, UK, Malaysia, Mauritius, Reunion, Seychelles, Pakistan, Somalia, Oman, Madagascar, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Comoro, Bangladesh, Tanzania, Mozambique, Kenya, the Crozet Islands, Kerguelen, South Africa and Singapore.

The agency predicts, in the event of a tsunami, the wave is expected to arrive at 16:21 o'clock in Simeulue, at 16:31 in Banda Aceh, at 17:17 in Padang, West Sumatra, and at 17:38 in Bengkulu. The last country hit by the tsunami is predicted that Singapore is expected to arrive at 23:51.

Not megathrust Mentawai

Massive earthquake rocked this once instead of Sumatra. In late 2004, a large earthquake and tsunami killed hundreds of thousands of people, with the highest number in Aceh.

Experts from the Earth Observatory of Singapore, Professor Kerry Sieh, and Edward said there is potential for large earthquakes in the Indian Ocean Indonesia, precisely around the Mentawai. This is due to the reverse fault or megathrust in the Mentawai.

Predicted to cause a shift megathrust earthquake measuring 8.8 magnitude. Not only that, any tsunami threat endangering the West Coast around the Mentawai islands.

analyze the earthquake which occurred Wednesday, occurred outside the zone of plate subduction or collision zones. "There is no relation to the Mentawai

the Australian plate, India, there are many fractures or cracks. "Some of the north and south. In the fracture there is a move, this causes an earthquake," he said. "The difference, nothing to do with the Mentawai."

Earthquake Epicenter Data

Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency said the first time this earthquake measuring 8.9 magnitude. Epicenter of the quake occurred at coordinates 2.31 North Latitude, 92.67 East Longitude, or about 346 kilometers southwest of the district Simeleu. While the epicenter at a depth of 10 kilometers from the sea surface.

However, BMKG then update the data twice. First, a magnitude 8.5 earthquake called SR. But then, again BMKG rectify and said an earthquake measuring 8.3 magnitudes.

On the release of the first quake, BMKG also said potential tsunami earthquake. But the tsunami warning was lifted a few hours after the earthquake, or about 20:15 o'clock.

BMKG also said there were 14 dozen aftershocks. Data recorded calls; at least four aftershocks hit Aceh and surrounding areas, which occur between the hours of 16:28 until 17:21. Strength of the quake was also varied, from 5.7 to 6.5 magnitudes.

But then comes aftershocks with greater force. At around 17:43, calling BMKG 8.1 earthquake shook the power of the SR. The earthquake occurred at the epicenter of an earthquake similar to the first, this time at a depth of 24 kilometers.

Major earthquake measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale hit parts of Sumatra. Ocean earthquake centered in Indonesia was also felt in neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, and India.

A fear of a potential tsunami earthquake is directly stomping cyberspace. The theme of the earthquake was a Twitter trending topic.

There are six words that became a trending topic on Twitter today.

# PrayForSumatera
# Sumatra
# Earthquake in Indonesia
# Indian Ocean

# Oceano Indico

Trending topic shows that fears of the quake was not only terrifying the citizens of Indonesia, but also the world community. For your information, the more familiar world of the Indian Ocean Indonesia as India or the Indian Ocean.
