It's now 8.7!

The agency said no major tsunami has been observed near epicenter of the earthquake which was upgraded from a magnitude of 8.2 to 8.7. An aftershock measuring 6.0 struck 30 minutes after the initial quake.

Scientists say the threat of a tsunami striking Indonesia and Thailand may have passed because a wave like the one that hit the region on December 26 would have reached those countries almost immediately. Monday's quake struck at 11:09 a.m. ET (1609 GMT).


Am just wondering at this point if Malaysians were involved in gauging the strength of the earthquake. How do you fluff up on 8.2 when it's an 8.7.

Wondering if I should go home for sleep or stay awake...aduh...dahlaa banyak kerja lagi.Esok anak buah sampai from Sabah at KLIA about 3pm.Mmm...we'll see...another half hour...if nothing develops...snooze time...
