118. There is another LBN thread
Edited on Mon Mar-28-05 03:09 PM by DinoBoy
Aparently the Indonesian Geophysics Agency (same sort of agency as the USGS) is claiming that there has been no tsunami. I am releived, but highly skeptical, as the areas of the coast that would have gotten hit by tsunami are mostly without even the most basic of communications to Jakarta. I assume that even in a "big city" like Banda Aceh, only very minimal telephone communication exists right now, if at all. PLUS, there was just a huge earthquake, which generally knocks out phone service, even if it were working!

ON EDIT: Plus, it was the middle of the night, and I assume most people ran to higher ground, and would be unable to see or hear the tsunami.
