WARNING!!!!!!********* Magnitude 8.9 - NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN 2011 March 11 05:46:23 UTC

ALL THOSE LOCATED ON THE PACIFIC RIM MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND NOW!!!!!

ALERT FOR INDIAN OCEAN: BE AWARE. tsunami-warning-map A huge 8.9-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Japan triggered a 23-foot-tall tsunami that has devastated parts of the country. Now, Hawaii, Alaska and much of the West Coast are expected to be hit by the powerful waves. A horrific 8.9 magnitute earthquake about 80 miles off the coast of Japan triggered a devastating tsunami that crashed into the island nation at about 2:20 am local time today. The deadly wave, which measured 23-feet-tall, has killed at least 60 people, and injured countless more. Blackouts caused by the quake spread as far as Russia and South America. Parts of the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and much of the West Coast ? from Washington state to the California-Mexico border ? are now in danger of a possible tsunami hit. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a tsunami warning/advisory for Hawaii, the West Coast and Alaska. Walls of water as high as 6-feet could begin hitting Hawaii as early as 3am local time (5am PST). By about 7am PST, the tsunami could begin to hit parts of Oregon, followed by the Washington and California coasts. While residents on the Oregon coast have been urged to evacuate, NOAA officials say the waves to hit California should be relatively small, and are expected to cause no major damage. In Japan, the situation is far worse. According to the United States Geological survey, the 8.9-magnitude quake is the fifth largest earthquake on Earth in over 100 years of recorded history. Cars, boats and houses were swept away as the resulting killer wave spread its path of destruction, which covered a 1,300-mile stretch of coast line that affected dozens of cities and villages. The Japanese government has declared a state of emergency at a nuclear power plant after a cooling system failed. Eleven of Japan?s nuclear reactors were shut down immediately following the quake. A number of Japan?s major industrial plants have been shut down in the wake of the disaster, including factories of Sony, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, and beermaker Sapporo, Bloomberg reports. One Honda worker was killed after a wall collapsed on top of him. Thirty other workers at that factor suffered injuries. Several employees at a Panasonic factory were also hurt in the quake. Here are some online resources for keeping up-to-date on the disaster in Japan, and the tsunamis expected to hit US shores:

Two powerful earthquakes hit eastern Indonesia AP ? 2 mins ago JAKARTA, Indonesia ? Two powerful earthquakes hit waters off eastern Indonesia in rapid succession early Thursday, prompting officials to briefly trigger a tsunami warning.

The U.S. Geological Survey said a 7.2 magnitude quake off Papua province, centered just 7 miles (12 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor, struck less than a minute after a 6.6 temblor in the same location. The town of Tual on nearby Maluku island was shaken, said Fauzi, chief of the Indonesian meteorological and geophysics agency, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The area closest to the epicenter is remote and sparsely populated. Located 1,800 miles (2,900 kilometers) east of the capital, Jakarta, it is closer to the northern Australian city of Darwin, which sits some 560 miles (900 kilometers) to the south. Fauzi's agency lifted a tsunami warning 90 minutes after the temblors struck, saying the threat for destructive waves had passed. Indonesia straddles a series of fault lines that make the vast island nation prone to volcanic and seismic activity.

A giant quake off the country on Dec. 26, 2004, triggered the Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 230,000 people, half of them in Indonesia's westernmost province of Aceh.

Powerful quake hits eastern Indonesia JAKARTA, Indonesia ? A powerful earthquake struck waters off of eastern Indonesia on Tuesday, but there were no immediate reports of damage and officials said there was no threat of a tsunami. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 and was centered off Sulawesi island, around 26 miles (42 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor. Some buildings shook in Manado, 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of the epicenter, and in the nearby cities of Bitung and Tondano. But Deny Hendrawanto, an official at Indonesia's earthquake monitoring office, said there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Dr. Fauzi, chief of the agency, said there also was no threat of a tsunami. Like many Indonesians, Fauzi uses just one name. Indonesia straddles a series of fault lines that make the vast island nation prone to volcanic and seismic activity. A giant quake off the country on Dec. 26, 2004, triggered the Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 230,000 people, half of them in Indonesia's westernmost province of Aceh.

STOP PRESS: A DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE HAS STRUCK HAITI KILLING HUNDREDS: OUR PRAYERS REACH OUT TO THE ISLAND OF HAITI TODAY AS WE AWAIT THE NEWS> PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti ?

Haitians piled bodies along the devastated streets of their capital Wednesday after the strongest earthquake hit the poor Caribbean nation in more than 200 years crushed thousands of structures, from humble shacks to the National Palace and the U.N. peacekeeping headquarters. Untold numbers were still trapped. Destroyed communications made it impossible to tell the extent of destruction from Tuesday afternoon's 7.0-magnitude tremor, or to estimate how many were dead among the collapsed buildings in Haiti's capital of about 2 million people. France's foreign minister said the head of the U.N. peacekeeping mission was apparently among the dead. International Red Cross spokesman Paul Conneally said an estimated 3 million people may have been affected by the quake and that it would take a day or two for a clear picture of the damage to emerge. Clouds of dust thrown up by falling buildings choked Port-au-Prince for hours. The United States and other nations began organizing aid efforts, alerting search teams and gathering supplies that will be badly needed in Haiti, the Western Hemisphere's poorest country. The international Red Cross and other aid groups announced plans for major relief operations. "Haiti has moved to center of the world's thoughts and the world's compassion," said British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Associated Press journalists based in Port-au-Prince found the damage staggering even for a country long accustomed to tragedy and disaster. Aftershocks rattled the city as women covered in dust clawed out of debris, wailing. Stunned people wandered the streets holding hands. Thousands gathered in public squares long after nightfall, singing hymns. People pulled bodies from collapsed homes, covering them with sheets by the side of the road. Passersby lifted the sheets to see if a loved one was underneath. Outside a crumbled building the bodies of five children and three adults lay in a pile. It was clear tens of thousands lost their homes and many perished in collapsed buildings that were flimsy and dangerous even under normal conditions. "The hospitals cannot handle all these victims," Dr. Louis-Gerard Gilles, a former senator, said as he helped survivors. "Haiti needs to pray. We all need to pray together." An Associated Press videographer saw a wrecked hospital where people screamed for help in Petionville, a hillside Port-au-Prince district that is home to many diplomats and wealthy Haitians as well as the poor. At a destroyed four-story apartment building, a girl of about 16 stood atop a car, trying to peer inside while several men pulled at a foot sticking from rubble. She said her family was inside. U.N. peacekeepers, many of whom are from Brazil, were distracted from aid efforts by their own tragedy: Many spent the night hunting for survivors in the ruins of their headquarters. "It would appear that everyone who was in the building, including my friend Hedi Annabi, the United Nations' Secretary General's special envoy, and everyone with him and around him, are dead," French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Wednesday, speaking on RTL radio. At least four Brazilian soldiers were killed and five injured, Brazil's army said. Jordan's official news agency said three of its peacekeepers were killed and 21 were injured. A state newspaper in China said eight Chinese peacekeepers were known dead and 10 were missing ? though officials later said the information was not confirmed. U.N. peacekeeping chief Alain Le Roy said late Tuesday that the missing included mission chief Hedi Annabi of Tunisia, who was in the building when the quake struck. Some 9,000 peacekeepers have been in Haiti since 2004, including 1,266 Brazilians. Much of the National Palace pancaked on itself, but Haiti's ambassador to Mexico, Robert Manuel, said President Rene Preval and his wife survived the earthquake. He had no details. The quake struck at 4:53 p.m., centered 10 miles (15 kilometers) west of Port-au-Prince at a depth of only 5 miles (8 kilometers), the U.S. Geological Survey said. USGS geophysicist Kristin Marano called it the strongest earthquake since 1770 in what is now Haiti. Most of Haiti's 9 million people are desperately poor, and after years of political instability the country has no real construction standards. In November 2008, following the collapse of a school in Petionville, the mayor of Port-au-Prince estimated about 60 percent of buildings were shoddily built and unsafe in normal circumstances. Tuesday's quake was felt in the Dominican Republic, which shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, and in eastern Cuba, but no major damage was reported in either place. With electricity knocked out in many places and phone service erratic, it was nearly impossible for Haitian or foreign officials to get full details of the devastation. "Everybody is just totally, totally freaked out and shaken," said Henry Bahn, a U.S. Department of Agriculture official visiting Port-au-Prince. "The sky is just gray with dust." In Washington, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said that U.S. Embassy personnel were "literally in the dark" after power failed. "They reported structures down. They reported a lot of walls down. They did see a number of bodies in the street and on the sidewalk that had been hit by debris. So clearly, there's going to be serious loss of life in this," he said. President Barack Obama offered prayers for the people of Haiti and said the U.S. stood ready to help. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was offering full assistance ? civilian and military ? and a national organization of registered nurses called for nurse volunteers to provide care in Haiti. Elizabeth Byrs, a spokeswoman for the U.N.'s humanitarian office, said it was working with independent aid agency Telecoms Sans Frontieres to get phone lines working again ? a key element in organizing relief efforts. Venezuela's government said it would send a military plane with canned foods, medicine and drinking water and provide 50 rescue workers. Mexico, which suffered an earthquake in 1985 that killed some 10,000 people, planned to send doctors, search and rescue dogs and infrastructure damage experts. Italy said it was sending a C-130 cargo plane Wednesday with a field hospital and emergency medical personnel as well as a team to assess aid needs. France said 65 clearing specialists, with six sniffer dogs, and two doctors and two nurses were leaving. Edwidge Danticat, an award-winning Haitian-American author was unable to contact relatives in Haiti. She sat with family and friends at her home in Miami, looking for news on the Internet and watching TV news reports. "You want to go there, but you just have to wait," she said. "Life is already so fragile in Haiti, and to have this on such a massive scale, it's unimaginable how the country will be able to recover from this."

1,000 people homeless on Solomons after tsunami AP HONIARA, Solomon Islands ? Landslides and a tsunami destroyed the homes of about one-third of the population on a Solomon Island, but lives were likely spared as residents with memories of previous disasters fled quickly to higher ground, officials said Tuesday. From the air, extensive damage could be seen on a remote western island after a 7.2-magnitude temblor triggered the landslides in the Pacific Solomon Islands on Monday, said disaster management office director Loti Yates. No injuries have been reported some 30 hours after the biggest in a series of quakes churned a tsunami wave that was up to 10 feet (3 meters) high as it plowed into the coast, officials said. However, more than 1,000 people have been affected after some 200 houses were destroyed on Rendova, an island some 190 miles (300 kilometers) from the capital Honiara. Only 3,600 people live on Rendova. Photographs taken from police helicopters Tuesday showed debris lining the foreshore and damaged houses on the coasts of Rendova and Tetepare, as well as deep scars on hills and cliffs caused by landslides. Hillsides crashed down and the tsunami inundated homes Monday, but residents' memories of earlier disasters probably helped prevent any casualties, officials and residents said. In April 2007, an 8.1 temblor unleashed a tsunami that killed more than 50 people. A quake-churned tsunami that killed more than 200 on nearby Samoa and Tonga in September was another reminder, locals said. "People are very sensitive, as a quake conjures up memories, and people immediately begin going to higher ground," police commissioner Peter Marshall told The Associated Press. "The fact it was daylight, the isolated nature of the wave and that the landslides were in a relatively sparsely populated area" also helped, he said. The largest quake ? magnitude 7.2 ? happened about 9:30 a.m. local time Monday and caused the tsunami to hit the coast a short time later. At least nine other quakes greater than magnitude 5.0 have rocked the earthquake-prone region since, including three Tuesday night. One measured magnitude 6.9 and generated a tsunami about an inch high. In the provincial capital Gizo, dive shop owner Danny Kennedy said the general rule is that "if there's anything more than 20 seconds of shaking or any sea water recedes, head for the hills." A police boat patrolled Tuesday to check the coastline, where many homes are at sea level, making them vulnerable to tsunamis, National Disaster Management Office spokesman Julian Makaa said. No casualties had been reported so far, he said. One village, Retavo, home to about 20 people, was reportedly completely inundated by a wall of sea water up to 10 feet (3 meters) high, but Makaa said no deaths or injuries had been reported there. Emergency food, water and tarpaulins were being shipped in. The Solomon Islands lie on the "Ring of Fire" ? an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim and where about 90 percent of the world's quakes occur. ___

IN THE PAST FEW DAYS THERE HAVE BEEN over 4.0 SERIOUS SIZE EARTHQUAKES IN INDONESIA.

LET US BE ON ALERT:)

WE ARE MONITORING WITH THE MET DEPARTMENT; TSUNAMI WARNING ISSUED IN INDONESIA: READ DETAILS BELOW:

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 7.2-magnitude quake struck at 1:34 a.m. (1734 GMT; 2:34 p.m. Wednesday EST) and was followed by nearly a dozen aftershocks. The temblor was centered approximately 195 miles (320 kilometers) from Manado, the northernmost city on Sulawesi island, and 12 miles (20 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor. The Talaud island chain, in waters just south of the Philippines, felt the quake most intensely, said Rustam Pakaya, a government crisis center official, adding that the number of injuries and extent of damage was increasing steadily as rescue workers reached remote areas. Hardest hit, so far, were the towns of Melonguane and Kabaruan. Nearly 500 buildings were damaged, including several schools, hospitals and churches, he said. Of the 42 people receiving medical care, 10 suffered serious injuries. The quake briefly triggered a tsunami warning ? delivered over mobile loudspeakers and by radio and television. It was lifted about an hour later, however, after the threat of killer waves had passed. "We were so afraid," said Damian Geruh, a Melonguane resident who described women screaming as they fled their homes. "We ran to nearby hill. I saw others climbing trees." Indonesia is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin. In December 2004, a massive earthquake off the country's western island of Sumatra triggered a tsunami that battered much of the Indian Ocean coastline and killed more than 230,000 people ? more than half of them in Indonesia's Aceh province alone. A tsunami off Java island in 2007 killed nearly 5,000. ___ Associated Press Writer Irwan Firdaus contributed to this report from Jakarta. Collapse Article

OFFICER NOTES: A famous Brazilian astrologer predicted another tsunami and told all the Sri Lankan newspapers which printed the story and has had the whole coastline running scared inland. This was a big problem as it was a full moon poya day and also a sunday. The CTEC phones were running off the hook starting on the 22nd of December through to a 48 hour period. All CTEC officers were called to duty and all stayed awake for 2 days together helping calm the scared crowds and reassuring them they had the situation under control. The Speaker systems and megaphones all came into play. Well done all officers.

OFFICER ALERT: There have been over 52 earthquakes over 5.1 magnitude in the "RING OF FIRE" DANGER REGION in the month of September!!!!! " OTHER EARTHQUAKE READINGS ARE BELOW THIS OFFICERS ACCOUNT" : SEPTEMBER 2007

A CTEC OFFICER GIVES AN ACCOUNT OF THE TERRIFYING PAST 4 DAYS AFTER

An 8.4 Earthquake struck in Southern Samatra, (The same place where the 2004 tsunami took place) 12th September, 2007, 5.00 pm, It is another usual day at CTEC. A duty officer notes that an earthquake measuring 7.9 has occurred in the Sumatra, Indonesia region 15 km deep from the sea bed. He quickly informs Roshan, our Centre Manager and the Meteorological Department were contacted to see whether there was a Tsunami. The answer was that there is a possible risk but still the situation is under observation. The CTEC phones were almost silent. The villagers were found to be carrying out their day to day activities. All CTEC officers were summoned to the Center. 5.15 pm A duty officer reports the earthquake magnitude has been rescaled to an 8.4 however, the depth has been revised to 30 km. The Met Department was asked ?will there be a Tsunami? ?The situation is under observation? was the response. CTEC phone lines started to ring and then explode into action. Calls were coming in from the entire coastline. We informed the people to be cautious but a ?Tsunami Warning has not yet been issued.? Some people have already started evacuation. 5.30 pm Swelling groups of villagers were downstairs outside the CTEC Centre. Everyone is anxious to know if there will be a Tsunami? Some are a little disturbed. ?If there is a big earthquake, why don?t you give a warning?? an anxious villager asks. ?It is not as easy as that. The government has to give the warning first. Once it is given, we will let you know. Please be calm!? Manager Roshan explains with a smile. Around 5.45 pm A TSUNAMI WARNING WAS ISSUSED by the Government. We broadcast Evacuation messages through the public address systems set up throughout the villages. ? This is a Special Announcement from the Community Tsunami Early-warning Centre. There is a Tsunami Threat. Please Evacuate. Please do not return till a clear warning is issued! Thank you.? The above message was broadcast continuously and community points all around the coast were contacted and CTEC plans went into action. CTEC volunteers around the coast aided in a safe evacuation. In the meantime, our CTEC motor brigade with loud speakers reaches out to the community to inform people. The officers from the Meetiyagoda Police Department were also a great help in evacuating the people. 630 pm The Evacuation is on going. Hundreds of telephone calls are flooding into the center. There is not enough time to document the details of all the calls. All CTEC officers are working their hearts and guts out! We remain calm but alert under pressure?a possible Tsunami may be heading right towards us! 7.00 pm The whole coastline has been evacuated, all is as silent as a graveyard. All CTEC officers remain at the Center manning hundreds of terrified callers. Many calls are coming in from places as far away as Jaffna, Baticaloa and Trincomalee. All of these places are the front lines for the bloodiest civil war that has been ongoing here in our country for over 30 years. These areas are on the other side of the country. 8.00 pm The phones were slowing down. We were watching the internet and satellite television feeds. I thought to myself ?that the tsunami may be here anytime and my feelings were mixed with extreme sadness from the memories of the last tsunami, and extreme happiness from being able to help the people to evacuate safely!? But we were trying not to have fear so we cracked a couple of practical jokes to keep the environment cool! Officer Danushka cooked a snack of biscuits but no-one was hungry. 8.30 pm Government issues all free TSUNAMI WARNING clearance. The message was distributed via the public address systems and phone systems. Hundreds of villagers have decided not to return to the coast today. We have ongoing continuous active communication with the village people hiding inland in schools and allocated higher ground safe areas. . 9.30 pm Many more quakes with earthquake magnitudes of 5.2 up to 7.6 are recorded in the same area in Sumatra, Indonesia. The CTEC phones are ringing off the hook. BUSY NIGHT- NO SLEEP FOR CTEC WORKERS. Monitoring for earthquakes 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 13th October 12.00 am All officers are onboard at CTEC!!!. The villages are deserted. There are almost no vehicles on the Galle Road. 3.00 am Time passes fast! More and more after quakes continue. Phone is a bit silent. 5.19 am An 8.3 quake in the same area! Contacted Met Department. ?The situation is under observation.? Phone is ringing off the hook!!!!!! incessantly. 7.30 am ?No Tsunami threat.? Hundreds of calls. There a few people in the villages. Also a few vehicles on the Galle Road. 9.00 am Keeping under surveillance. A couple of small after quakes. NB: It was evident that CTEC could do great things to help protect people?s lives alone with the national warning mechanism. We are a few months behind the third year Tsunami Anniversary and we are happy to contribute to the National Tsunami Warning System.

********NOTE:THERE HAVE BEEN AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF EARTHQUAKES ( over 30 ) WITH A MAGNITUDE READING OF OVER 5.2 THIS PAST WEEK. ALL OFFICERS KEEP ALERT.

A 7.9 strong earth quake struck off Sumatra island in Indonesia on Wednesday afternoon.

The Sumatra earthquake could cause a destructive tsunami at various points throughout the Indian Ocean region, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The epicentre was about 50km off the coast, near the city of Padang. There are reports of damage to buildings but it is unclear if there are casualties. The earth quake struck at 5:17 pm Thai time and could be felt in high rise buildings as far away as Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Singapore. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a tsunami alert for Indonesia, Malaysia, India and Thailand, The Associated Press said. The wire agency also said that the quake, which struck off the city of Padang on the coast of Sumatra, damaged houses, brought down bridges and started fires in the city. ?Hundreds of houses have been damaged along the road. There are some fires, bridges are cut and there is extreme panic here maybe because water pipes are broken and there is flooding in the streets,? said a Reuters witness in the city. Phone lines were down, Reuters reported. The depth of the tsunami was measured at 85km, the United States Geological Survey said. A series of tsunamis earlier smashed into the Pacific island nations of American and Western Samoa killing possibly more than 100 people, some washed out to sea, destroying villages and injuring hundreds, officials said on Wednesday. A 9.15-magnitude quake, with its epicentre roughly 600km northwest of Padang, caused the 2004 tsunami which killed 232,000 people in Indonesia?s Aceh province, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, and other countries across the Indian Ocean. Geologists have long said Padang, with a population of 900,000, may one day be destroyed by a huge earthquake because of its location, Reuters reported. ?Padang sits right in front of the area with the greatest potential for an 8.9 magnitude earthquake,? said Danny Hilman Natawidjaja, a geologist at the Indonesian Science Institute, earlier this year. ?The entire city could drown,? in a tsunami triggered by such a quake, he warned. Indonesia quake kills 75, thousands trapped Powerful earthquake hits Indonesia. By NINIEK KARMINI, Associated Press Writer Niniek Karmini, Associated Press Writer ? 1 hr 1 min ago JAKARTA, Indonesia ? A powerful earthquake rocked western Indonesia Wednesday, trapping thousands under collapsed buildings ? including two hospitals ? and triggering landslides. At least 75 people were killed on Sumatra island and the death toll was expected to climb sharply. The magnitude 7.6 quake struck at 5:15 p.m. local time (1015GMT, 6:15 a.m. EDT), just off the coast of Padang city the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was along the same fault line that spawned the massive 2004 Asian tsunami that killed more than 230,000 people in a dozen countries. A tsunami warning for countries along the Indian Ocean was issued, and panicked residents fled to higher ground fearing giant waves. The warning was lifted about an hour later. When the quake struck, the ground was shaking so hard that people sat down on the streets to avoid falling over, footage shot in Padang and broadcast by local TVOne network showed. Children screamed as residents tried to put out fires started in the quake. Thousands fled the coast in cars and motorbikes, honking horns. Initial reports received by the government said 75 people were killed, but the real number is "definitely higher than that," Vice President Jusuf Kalla told reporters in the capital, Jakarta. "It's hard to tell because there is heavy rain and a blackout," he said. Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari told MetroTV that a mall and two hospitals had collapsed in Padang ? a sprawling low-lying city in Western Sumatra province of around 900,000 people that geologists have warned could be vulnerable to a massive quake or tsunami. "This is a high-scale disaster, more powerful than the earthquake in Yogyakarta in 2006 when more than 3,000 people died," Supari said, referring to a major city on the main island of Java. Rustam Pakaya, head of the Health Ministry's crisis center, said "thousands of people are trapped under the collapsed houses." A field hospital was being prepared to assist the injured and medical teams were on the way from neighboring provinces, he said. "Many buildings are badly damaged, including hotels and mosques," said Wandono, an official at Meteorology and Geophysics Agency in Jakarta, citing reports from residents. Footage from Padang showed flattened buildings, the foot of one person sticking out from beneath the debris. "The earthquake was very strong," said Kasmiati, who lives on the coast near to the epicenter. "People ran to high ground. Houses and buildings were badly damaged." "I was outside, so I am safe, but my children at home were injured," she said before her cell phone went dead. TV One said the quake triggered landslides that cut all roads to Padang. Power and telecommunications were also cut. Fire also broke out in buildings on a road to the city, officials said. "I want to know what happened to my sister and her husband," said Fitra Jaya, who owns a house in downtown Padang and was in Jakarta when the quake struck. "I tried to call my family there, but I could not reach anyone at all." Wednesday's quake came a day after a quake with a magnitude of between 8.0 and 8.3 in the South Pacific hurled a massive tsunami at the shores of Samoa and American Samoa, flattening villages and leaving at least 99 dead and dozens missing. The epicenter of Wednesday's temblor off Indonesia lies several thousand miles (kilometers) to the west, on the other side of Australia. The shaking could be felt in high buildings in Jakarta, several hundred miles (kilometers) away. It was also felt in neighboring Singapore and Malaysia. Padang was badly hit by an 8.4 magnitude quake in September 2007, when dozens of people died and several large buildings collapsed.

At least 99 dead in tsunami in Samoa, American Samoa APIA, Samoa (AP) ? A powerful earthquake in the South Pacific hurled a massive tsunami at the shores of Samoa and American Samoa, flattening villages and sweeping cars and people out to sea, leaving at least 99 dead and dozens missing. Survivors fled the fast-churning water for higher ground and remained huddled there hours after the quake struck early Tuesday. Signs of devastation were everywhere, with a giant boat washed ashore lying on the edge of a highway and floodwaters swallowing up cars and homes. The quake, with a magnitude between 8.0 and 8.3, struck around dawn about 125 miles from Samoa, an island nation of 180,000 people located about halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii. It struck about 120 miles from neighboring American Samoa, a U.S. territory that is home to 65,000 people. Four tsunami waves 15 to 20 feet high roared ashore on American Samoa, reaching up to a mile inland, Mike Reynolds, superintendent of the National Park of American Samoa, was quoted as saying by a parks service spokeswoman. Hampered by power and communications outages, officials struggled to determine damage and casualties. Samoan police commissioner Lilo Maiava told The Associated Press that police there had confirmed 63 deaths but that officials were still searching the devastated areas, so the number of deaths might rise soon. Hundreds of injured people were being treated by health workers, and people were still struggling into centers seeking treatment, Maiava said. At least 30 people were killed on American Samoa, Gov. Togiola Tulafono said, adding that the toll was expected to rise as emergency crews were recovering bodies overnight. "I don't think anybody is going to be spared in this disaster," said Tulafono, who was in Hawaii for a conference. In Washington, President Obama declared a disaster for American Samoa. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it was deploying teams to provide support and assess damage. Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi looked shaken Wednesday on board a flight from Auckland, New Zealand, to the Samoan capital of Apia. "So much has gone. So many people are gone," he told reporters on board. "I'm so shocked, so saddened by all the loss." Malielegaoi said his own village of Lepa was destroyed. "Thankfully, the alarm sounded on the radio and gave people time to climb to higher ground," he said. "But not everyone escaped." Gov. Tulafono told reporters in Hawaii that a member of his extended family was among the dead in American Samoa. Because the closeness of the community, "each and every family is going to be affected by someone who's lost their life," he said as he boarded a Coast Guard C-130 plane in Hawaii to return home. The plane, which also carried FEMA officials and aid, was scheduled to arrive at about 7 a.m. local time. (2 p.m. ET) Authorities in Tonga confirmed at least six additional people dead in the island nation west of the Samoas, New Zealand's acting Prime Minister Bill English said. He said Tongan officials told him that four people were missing after the tsunami swept ashore on the northern island of Niua. "There are a considerable number of people who've been swept out to sea and are unaccounted for," English said. "We don't have information about the full impact and we do have some real concern that over the next 12 hours the picture could look worse rather than better." A New Zealand P3 Orion maritime surveillance airplane had reached the region Wednesday afternoon and had searched for survivors off the coast, he said. It was expected to resume searching at first light. The Samoa Red Cross said it had opened five temporary shelters and estimated that about 15,000 people were affected by the tsunami. New Zealander Graeme Ansell said the Samoan beach village of Sau Sau Beach Fale was leveled. "It was very quick. The whole village has been wiped out," Ansell told New Zealand's National Radio from a hill near Samoa's capital, Apia. "There's not a building standing. We've all clambered up hills, and one of our party has a broken leg. There will be people in a great lot of need 'round here." Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd told Seven Network in Australia that two Australians had died in the tsunami, including a 6-year-old girl. The other Australian victim was identified by her family as 50-year-old Maree Blacker. "This is a tragic day for the people of Samoa," Rudd said. Mase Akapo, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in American Samoa, reported at least 19 people killed in four different villages on the main island of Tutuila. Officials reported at least 50 injured. Residents in both Samoa and American Samoa reported being shaken awake by the quake early Tuesday, which lasted two to three minutes and was centered about 20 miles (32 kilometers) below the ocean floor. It was followed by at least three large aftershocks of at least 5.6 magnitude. The quake came Tuesday morning for the Samoas, which lie just east of the international dateline. For Asia-Pacific countries on the other side of the line, it was already Wednesday. The Samoan capital, Apia, was virtually deserted by afternoon, with schools and businesses closed. Hours after the waves struck, fresh sirens rang out with another tsunami alert and panicked residents headed for higher ground again, although there was no indication of a new quake. In American Samoa's capital of Pago Pago, the streets and fields were filled with ocean debris, mud, overturned cars and several boats as a massive cleanup effort continued into the night. Several buildings in the city ? just a few feet above sea level ? were flattened by either the quake or the tsunami. Several areas were expected to be without electricity for up to a month. The dominant industry in American Samoa ? tuna canneries ? was also affected. Chicken of the Sea's tuna packing plant in American Samoa was forced to close although the facility wasn't damaged, the San Diego-based company said. The effects of the tsunami could be felt thousands of miles away. Japan's Meteorological Agency said "very weak" tsunami waves were registered off the island of Hachijojima about 10 hours after the quake. There were no reports of injuries or damage in Japan, which is about 4,700 miles northwest of Samoa. U.S. officials said strong currents and dangerous waves were forecast from California to Washington state. No major flooding was expected, however. In Los Angeles, lifeguards said they would clear beaches at about 8 p.m. in response to an advisory for possible dangerous currents. While the earthquake and tsunami were big, they were not on the same scale of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, said Brian Atwater of the U.S. Geological Survey in Seattle. That tsunami killed more than 230,000 in a dozen countries across Asia.

BE PREPARED: HUGE EARTHQUAKE OFF INDONESIA!!!

Indonesia quake toll at 57, many homes damaged Reuters Residents gather outside a mosque damaged by a powerful earthquake at Cisaat village Reuters ? Residents gather outside a mosque damaged by a powerful earthquake at Cisaat village, West Java September ? By Dadang Tri Dadang Tri ? Thu Sep 3, 7:35 am ET CIKANGKARENG, Indonesia (Reuters) ? Indonesian villagers continued a frantic search on Thursday for people buried in the rubble, after a powerful quake killed at least 57 and destroyed thousands of homes in the hills of West Java. Government agencies said the death toll was likely to rise, given that some affected coastal areas could not be contacted after Wednesday's 7.0 magnitude earthquake, which sent terrified residents rushing out onto the streets of the capital, Jakarta, and in towns and villages closer to the epicenter in West Java. In Cikangkareng village about 60 miles south of Jakarta, the quake triggered a landslide that buried more than 40 people, as well as houses and a mosque, under rocks and earth, a Reuters witness said. "Many of our young were buried by the landslide. We need food, we don't have food," said villager Rohim. Priyadi Kardono, spokesman for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, said that it was difficult to rescue any survivors or recover bodies trapped under the landslide because heavy earth-moving machines could not be used effectively. He warned the death toll could "change significantly" given the scale of damage, with at least 57 people reported dead in West Java. The quake injured about 150 people and damaged more than 24,000 houses, schools, offices, mosques and other buildings.

A magnitude-6.8 earthquake hit off Japan's southern coast Monday, prompting the Meteorological Agency to issue a tsunami warning. The quake struck off the coast of Ishigaki island, near Japan's southern island of Okinawa, around 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) south of Tokyo. It struck at a depth of about six miles (10 kilometers), the agency said. Naoto Ohtake, a police official on Ishigaki, said there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties on the island, a popular resort destination with a population of 40,000. "Nothing fell off during the quake. Electricity, water and gas are all working," Ohtake said. Japan is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries. The most recent major quake in Japan killed more than 6,400 people in the western port city of Kobe in January 1995.

Earthquake Summary Small globe showing earthquakeSmall map showing earthquake Felt Reports WP 7.6 (GS). Tectonic Summary The Andaman Islands earthquake of August 10, 2009, occurred in the boundary region of India plate and the Burma plate, near the north end of the rupture zone associated with the great Sumatra?Andaman earthquake of December 26, 2004. Early analysis of seismographic data implies that the earthquake occurred as the result of normal faulting on a north-northeast or northeast trending fault plane. This style of faulting is consistent with the earthquake occurring as a result of stresses generated by bending of the India plate as it subducts beneath the Burma plate. The August 10 earthquake was therefore an intraplate earthquake, in contrast to the great 2004 earthquake, which was an interplate thrust-fault earthquake on the interface between the India plate and the Burma plate. Although the style of faulting that caused the August 10, 2009 earthquake differs from the style of faulting that caused the great 2004 earthquake, it is possible that changes in regional tectonic strain-field caused by the 2004 earthquake made conditions more favorable for the occurrence of the 2009 earthquake than would otherwise have been the case. It is noteworthy that in the days immediately following the 2004 earthquake there were a large number of normal-faulting earthquakes in the subducted India plate of the Andaman Islands region. The largest Andaman Islands intraplate normal-fault earthquake in the immediate aftermath of the 2004 earthquake was more than an order of magnitude smaller than the August 10, 2009, earthquake.

Strong quake off Tonga: USGS AFP Strong quake strikes off Tonga: USGS AFP/Graphic ? A map locating the 6.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Tonga. The strong quake rattled the Pacific island ? Tue Nov 24, 10:01 am ET NUKU'ALOFA (AFP) ? A strong quake with a magnitude of 6.8 hit off the Pacific island nation of Tonga early Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said, although there was no threat of a widespread destructive tsunami. The earthquake struck at 2:47 am (1247 GMT) and was centred 193 kilometres (120 miles) east-northeast of the capital Nuku'alofa at a depth of 62 kilometres, USGS said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii said "no destructive widespread tsunami threat exists based on historical earthquake and tsunami data". It said in an information bulletin that quakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts within 100 kilometres of the epicentre. The quake was followed by an aftershock of 5.6 magnitude. Nine people died in September when a tsunami hit the northern Tongan island of Niuatoputapu following an 8.0-magnitude earthquake. The tsunami also killed 143 people in Samoa and another 34 in neighbouring American Samoa. Earthquakes are common in the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where continental plates in the Earth's crust meet.

No lives were lost and one of the injured was taken to hospital. A snake bite was amongst one of the strange injuries of the night. An alert CTEC saved the village from burning down.

The villagers ran to the Tsunami center which had the only generator power and they raced into action and called the police and fire brigade and jumped on their motor bikes with loud speakers to evacuate the people. Dr Novil took over the medical situation. July 25th, 2005 "Why are we cursed that we should fear the night" was a comment a villager screamed as he was running away with his family from a tsunami rumor.

We urged him to stop and trust the new "Community Tsunami Early-warning Center.( CTEC) Last night a 7.0 Earthquake was recorded in the nearby Nicobar islands sending a frenzy throughout the coastal villages and many people came to the center for re-assurance. The center received over 80 calls from worried villagers and took over the emergency night situation. The center monitored the world and were on constant call with the Met department. It is all about ground root communications with the people themsleves.

Betwen 9:30 to 2am officers were able to drive around the village and re-assure the people that the situation was being monitored and then later that there was no tsunami. Our first lectures to the villagers had started that day and the center acted proud and responsibly. Last March 28th there was an 8.7 earthquake in nearby Sumatra, the same place as the last tsunami earthquake. 12 people in Galle died running away from the tsunami rumor.

Last night there were a few injuries of lost toenails etc which were treated at the temple. Once again seeing the fear in the eyes of these people was heart wrenching and babies were being handed off into our arms for safety. A job well done by everyone...

May 18, 2005 The First Tsunami Warning System in Sri lanka is now officially working along Galle Rd just outside Peraliya village run by the villages themselves funded by all of us and Rotary Cronulla. It is called the Community Tsunami Early -warning Center. ( CTEC) Hopefully it will be copied along the coast in other areas. An opening ceremony was organized by Dr Novil along with a movie called "Finding Nemo" for the children. We are all very excited.

The office is run by paid officers who work in 6 hour shifts, 24 hours a day 365 days a year. They monitor the world for earthquakes using a computer and are also connected to the Met department, the Geological society and the other tsunami centers around the world. It is equipped with laptops, satelite tv, phone systems, generators and backup systems. A speaker system is set up in the nearby villages connected to the center so warning signals can be sent in case of emergencies. We are trying to develop a wireless system that we can grow all along the coast. April 10th 2005 Dr Novil, James and myself have been busy planning the new tsunami warning center, which includes raising money and holding meetings with the local villages to get them involved. To work it needs to be at a community level run by the villagers themselves.

THIS ACCOUNT BELOW IS ONE OF THE REASONS WE WERE INSPIRED TO CREATE THE FIRST TSUNAMI EARLY WARNING CENTER.

SINCE THE BEGINNING OF JANUARY OUR VILLAGERS HAVE LIVED IN FEAR OF ANOTHER TSUNAMI AND DON'T SLEEP AT NIGHT. TWICE A WEEK THEY RUN AWAY FROM A TSUNAMI RUMOR AND IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THEM TO COME BACK TO THE VILLAGE.

THIS IS MY ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED WHEN AN 8.7 EARTHQUAKE HIT THE SAME PLACE AS THE ONE BEFORE IN NORTHERN SUMATRA INDONESIA, WHICH IN TURN SET OFF A FRENZY ALONG THE WHOLE COAST OF SRI LANKA.

12 PEOPLE IN GALLE WERE KILLED THAT NIGHT IN THE CONFUSION OF RUNNING AWAY AND THE EARTHQUAKE KILLED OVER A THOUSAND PEOPLE IN NEARBY NIAS.

 

March 29, 2005

Terrifying night. At approx.10:30pm last night we received a call from Germany, Italy and a text from James in the UK saying "huge earthquake/ tsunami warning/ head for higher ground now!" Usually a person would run to safety but we had a different problem in being responsible for the Peraliya village of over 2,000 people. We grabbed torches and our nightvision goggles and started calling around the world to see what was happening. I looked out into the sea and wondered what was coming towards us? Volunteers and hotel owners were informed and we raced to Peraliya where a mass evacuation was under way. People fled in terror by foot, 3-4 miles inland carrying only the children and babies. We rode the streets on a motorcycle re-assuring the villages and met up with the chief and the village oragnisers who were attempting to get things under control. They were wrapped in ropes for climbing the coconut trees, ready to conquer the unknown darkness of the sea. We were blind to what was coming but we were ready. James in the UK was our only link to the outside world and he monitored the situation through cell phone texts.

We rode through the streets and people called out our names trying to touch us for comfort and news. I wanted to find the women and children. I needed to see if they were okay. We found them a long way away, about a thousand coconut trees from the shore in a school built on a hill. They hugged us and led me up to a room covered with hundreds of babies and children and as I walked through the room women grabbed me and pushed their babies into my arms asking me to save them.

One lady had lost her other 7 children to the tsunami and she was determined not to lose this one. I re-assured them but couldn't reveal that I was also in the dark and closed my eyes to call back the angels I had asked for at the beginning of January. The angels had never left. The hours passed as James gave the text word that no waves were coming to swallow us. A few people started heading back to their homes but a lot stayed in the jungle not leaving it to chance. Back at Peraliya beach, Oscar and I sat with about 15 of the village organisers and watched the sea through the night vision goggles. It was a full moon and the night was calm with soft waves licking onto the shores.

The dogs sat with us and that was a good sign. 'Better to be safe than sorry,' we all agreed. None of us wanted to be responsible for not raising the alarm.

These people have become our brothers and sisters, our blood and I would put myself between the wave and them any day of the week. Now I just have to find them. Alison..

Tectonic Summary: The devastating earthquake of 26 December 2004 occurred as thrust-faulting on the interface of the India plate and the Burma plate.

In a period of minutes, the faulting released elastic strains that had accumulated for centuries from ongoing subduction of the India plate beneath the overriding Burma plate. In a broad sense, the India and Australian plates move toward the north- northeast with respect to the interior of the Eurasia plate with velocities of about 60 mm/y in the region of the earthquake. In the region of northern Sumatra and the Nicobar Islands, most of the relative motion of India/Australia and the Eurasia plate is accommodated at the Sunda trench and within several hundred kilometers to the east of the Sunda trench, on the boundaries of the Burma plate. The direction in which India/Australia converges toward Eurasia is oblique to the trend of the Sunda trench. The oblique motion is partitioned into thrust-faulting and strike-slip faulting. The thrust faulting occurs on the interface between the India plate and the western margin of the Burma plate and involves slip directed at a large angle to the orientation of the trench.

The strike-slip faulting occurs on the eastern boundary of the Burma plate and involves slip directed approximately parallel to the trench. The 26 December main shock occurred as the result of thrust faulting on the western Burma-plate boundary, but many strike-slip faulting aftershocks occurred on the eastern plate boundary. Currently available models of the 26 December main-shock fault displacement differ in many interesting details, but are consistent in implying that fault- rupture propagated to the northwest from the epicenter and that substantial fault-rupture occurred hundreds of kilometers northwest of the epicenter. The data upon which the modeling is based do not permit confident resolution of the extent of rupture beyond about 500 km northwest of the main-shock epicenter.

The width of the earthquake rupture, measured perpendicular to the Sunda trench, is estimated to have been about 150 kilometers and the maximum displacement on the fault plane about 20 meters. The sea floor overlying the thrust fault would have been uplifted by several meters as a result of the earthquake. The zone of aftershocks to the 26 December earthquake is over 1300 km long.

Because aftershocks occur on and very near the fault-planes of main shocks, the length of the aftershock zone suggests that main-shock fault-rupture may have extended north of the epicenter by an amount significantly larger than 500 km. However, a great earthquake may also trigger earthquake activity on faults that are distinct from the main-shock fault plane and separated from it by tens or even hundreds of kilometers. We will not know until further analysis how much of the 26 December aftershock zone may correspond to activity in the immediate vicinity of the main-shock rupture, and how much may correspond to activity remote from the main-shock rupture.

Since 1900, earthquakes similarly sized or larger than the 26 December earthquake have been the magnitude 9.0 1952 Kamchatka earthquake, the magnitude 9.1 1957 Andreanof Islands, Alaska, earthquake, the magnitude 9.5 1960 Chile earthquake, and the magnitude 9.2 1964 Prince William Sound, Alaska, earthquake. All of these earthquakes, like the one on 26 December, were mega-thrust events, occurring where one tectonic plate subducts beneath another. All produced destructive tsunamis, although deaths and damage from the 26 December tsunami far exceed those caused by tsunamis associated with the earlier earthquakes.???
