Indonesia quake felt in India, tsunami warning

Chennai, April 11, 2012

India issued a tsunami warning for its eastern coast on Wednesday after a 8.9 magnitude quake in Indonesia shook major Indian cities, causing panic and sending people fleeing onto the streets.

India's tsunami warning center said waves measuring up to 6 metres were expected along parts of its eastern coast, which was heavily hit by the 2004 tsunami. Smaller waves were expected to hit the remote Andaman and Nicobar islands.

Indonesia's Geophysical Agency reported earlier an earthquake measuring 8.9 on Richter scale off Aceh. An Indian Ocean-wide tsunami warning has been issued. - Reuters
