Earthquake in Sumatra

Posted by jirikoo on September 9, 2011 at 5:15 PM

A 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck Southwest Sumatra, Indonesia, on early Tuesday morning. Since its epicenter was beneath the land crust near the town of Singkil, luckily it did not generate a subsequent tsunami. However, it caused a great material damage to towns in that area, amongst others, to Singkil, which was heavily shattered. Latest reports suggest several people died as a direct result from the horrendou disaster. I have not been so far able to get information about the situation in the Pulau Banyak archipelago.
