The quake was described as “very strong” by a number of people who sopke to the media. People were reportedly jumping from building and running away from their homes in panic after the quake struck. Up to a dozen people have been injured, some hurt jumping from buildings while others were hit by falling debris, according to news reports quoting officials.  No tsunami warning was issued.

An earthquake on the main Indonesian island of Java left more than 50 dead on September 2, 2009.

The 9.3 Mw Sumatra-Andaman earthquake which caused the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed an estimated quarter of million people in 11 countries, was the second largest earthquake recorded on a seismograph. The earthquake was also characterized by the longest ever duration of faulting lasting about 10 minutes, which made the entire planet to vibrate about 1 cm triggering earthquakes as far north as in Alaska.

FEWW Comments: More Mega-quakes should be expected in this region and other areas in the coming months. FEWW will post a separate [disturbing] forecast later.
