Default Earthquake in Indonesia, Felt in India: 11-Apr-2012

Hi Guys,

I am sitting in my office in Chennai (Chromepet) and can feel the building shaking NOW. At first, I thought something was wrong with me. But, when i called up my other colleagues, everyone felt the shake.

At this point of time, my table is shaking. Did any of you guys in Chennai feel this?

Hey friend, did you feel that too. I was in fact looking up on the net to see if anything of this sort happened apart from my office. Yes, we did feel tremors here at the Airport Road office. Hope those were mild and never return back with a bang

A few felt it in Chennai too. It's supposed to be quite a big earthquake near Sumatra.

Magnitude 8.7 - OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA

The epicentre is near Northern Sumatra, we can probably merge the two threads as it seems like the same earthquake has had an effect everywhere. From what I have read, the tremors were felt in Kolkata too.

There is a TSUNAMI WARNING: Please inform your near and dear ones, residing near coastal areas.

A massive earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale rocked Indonesia on Wednesday afternoon. Indonesia's geophysical agency issued tsunami warning following the quake whose epicentre was in Aceh.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued Indian Ocean-wide tsunami warning.

Tremors were also felt in Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Patna and several other cities on the eastern coast of India.

If these warnings (from Indonesian as well as Indian government) are to be believed then the people in coastal regions of India have got around 1 hours time to evacuate.

I felt it at my office in ORR, Bangalore.
Appalling that people did not want to evacuate, despite repeated attempts at getting them out. Surprised that there was no official announcement from facilities operations/security either.
