Possibility of a second Tsunami

I’m sure that like a number of people I’m following the news of an earthquake off the coast of Indonesia that measured 8.2 on the Richter scale. There’s a real risk that this could trigger a second tsunami in areas that are only just recovering from the first one on Boxing Day.
You can view the details of it at the US Geological Survey. (thanks to Kottke). There’s also a Wikipedia article which is aggregating the news stories coming through.
Be rest assured that if the worst does happen, I will be donating some of the Google AdSense revenue from this site to a tsunami relief charity if an appeal for money goes out.


  1. Let’s hope for the best…those poor people must be scared to death.

  2. Well, there was no tsunami – but apparently up to 1,000 people are feared dead from the Earthquake.
