Tsunami, Part 2

My friend Jeanne pointed out that BBC has just reported that an 8.2 magnitude earthquake has just hit 200 miles off the coast of Indonesia. This is the same faultline that caused the tsunami just after Christmas. One seismologist describes this earthquake as almost certainly an aftershock of the quake that caused that tsunami. An 8.2 magnitude aftershock. Thailand and Indonesia have already issued tsunami alerts. Let's hope everyone's more prepared this time, both citizens taking precautions and the world-wide community in sending aid as needed.
