Tsunami Watch

7.8 Quake Rocks Indonesia

We've lost track of the tally, but another quake has struck. A 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Indonesia at 5:15 Wednesday morning, causing geologists to order a tsunami watch for the area within 62 miles of the epicenter. The shock hit 125 miles off the coast of Sibolga on Indonesia's Sumatra island, at a depth of 28.6 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. Scientists aren't expecting a “destructive widespread tsunami”—this quake will likely at most cause only a small wave.
