Powerful Earthquake Hits Indonesia
By Nancy-Amelia Collins
Jakarta
12 September 2007

"A powerful earthquake struck off western Indonesia killing at least nine people, destroying several buildings and triggering a small tsunami. VOA's Nancy-Amelia Collins in Jakarta has more...
Voice Of America

Remember:
"In December 2004, a powerful 9.1 earthquake triggered a tsunami off the coast of Sumatra island that killed over 160,000 people in Indonesia's Aceh province."

"After the December 2004 tsunami, a tsunami alert system was put in place to warn people of potential tsunamis. The Indonesian presidential spokesman Andi Mallerangeng says the system seems to be working."

If you'll recall back in 2004...
This is what happened...



A growing wave, traveling, from an earthquake far away...
and what started out so seemingly calm grew to a monster
that killed hundreds of thousands in 2004 -
(229,866 people lost, including 186,983 dead and 42,883 missing.}


This picture...

from this video...
-Tsunami in Phuket Thailand in 2004, -




(Caution - this is raw, unedited graphic footage
of what happens in 15 minutes of a Tsunami -
the sea first calmly recedes in Sunset Bay...
then returns... relentlessly.)



and in Sri Lanka
December 26,2004...



...................................................
Update 2008...

I wanted to add this video to this post

— Tsunami na Indonésia-Missões na Indonésia —


...So very sad.

"Back on December 26th, 2004, a powerful 9.1 earthquake triggered a tsunami off the coast of Sumatra Island ..."

You know Geno. . .
 
I've thought about these things a lot, being by the ocean.
 
There is a huge fault line offshore, that runs parallel to the beach here in the San Diego area.
 
I always told my son, since he was little, that if ever the water recedes, don't get curious. . . get the hell out of there, and head for very high ground. . . don't look back. . . look to take pictures. . . or any of that bs. . . just keep moving on up.
 
I used to dive. . . doing environmental studies, etc.  I've seen that falult line. . . WOW what a drop.  Very frightening underwater.
 
The power of just a foot of water, especially moving very quickly is mind boggling.  There's nothing within our general comprehension that alerts us successfully to how this "little wave" can be such a killer.
 
Even the videos that you posted, can't really capture why it's so devastating.  It's unfortunately something that has to be experienced first hand to be believed.
 
Great post, Gene.  You did it AGAIN!!

Some Tsunami waves can reach speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.
They can be a foot high, or 100 feet high.
If you have ever tried to pick up a 5 gallon can of water, you know how heavy 5 gallons of water is.A One square foot container contains over 7 gallons of water. One square foot=seven gallons.
Imagine how much weight, and how many gallons of water are within a wave that is ten feet high, and maybe 30 feet across at the base, that
is a mile long. The energy contained in this wave is staggering.

Mixey and Toad.

Yes, the power of water flowing or moving is a nearly unstoppable force, and imagine the long waveforms that these waves travel in are moving at up to 500 miles per hour. Frightening!

Here's the latest from BBC News:

— Rescuers assess quake-hit Sumatra —

"There are fears some people may be still trapped in the rubble
Relief teams are assessing the damage on Indonesia's island of Sumatra which was hit by two massive earthquakes.
At least nine people are known to have been killed and some 40 injured in the undersea tremors and a series of aftershocks on Wednesday and Thursday."

"Tsunami warnings were repeatedly issued and lifted, as many people ran inland fearing a repeat of the 2004 tsunami..."

BBC News (continued here)

"You could see the road as if it was waving, people could hardly walk
so they just lay flat on the road"
reports Zulkifli Lubis (Bengkulu journalist)



for more pictures from BBC News (click here)





And MIXEY... You wrote:
"I used to dive. . . doing environmental studies, etc. I've seen that fault line. . . WOW what a drop. Very frightening underwater.

I do remember You telling me about this before, it must be awesome to see and "feel" while diving, and in light of the potential that this fault has the power to do... frightening. I hope for all of us that it remains as dormant as possible for a very long, long time!

...and it's been pretty busy in Your neck of the woods lately too...

— Northeastern Nevada Hit by 6.0 Quake —
1 hour ago
WELLS, Nev. (AP) — Windows shattered and building facades and signs fell, but no one was seriously injured when a powerful earthquake shook this rural northeastern town on Thursday.
The quake, which had an estimated magnitude of 6.0, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., struck at 6:16 a.m., and was centered in a sparsely populated area 11 miles southeast of Wells near the Nevada-Utah line.... (continued here)

Hi Mixey,
You are correct!
That one link did go away...

It appears that some of the quake info is harder to find after "7 days" has passed... Go figure!
Oh well,,, as I posted above... here's the "Earth Quakes of the Last 7 Days" from Your neck of the woods and for Everybody on the Southern Left Coast of This Planet...


— Recent Earthquakes in California and Nevada of The Last 7 Days —

and here...

Mixey!

i agree with You... that is exactly what it seems like where You are... all around Ya, but not "directly" there.

Those links are interesting, aren't they.... I wanted to take that How Prepared Are You test, and of course add fun answer/options to the choices... like

(d) yes, plenty of emergency beer, wine, cigs and cigars on hand to last (3) days
*lol*



and wow... look at the pictures in this black & white slide show here of the railroad tracks and tunnel. Amazing.

``` The news was also reporting that if a wave/tsunami event were to reach the coast of California, Baja, etc., it would take about ± six (6) hours depending on water depth over the distance traveled. ```

Yikes!

Also probably not a bad idea to keep a closer eye in this one again...
