And a 6.0 aftershock just hit.

On December 26, 2004, a 9.1-magnitude underwater earthquake struck off the coast of Sumatra, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people in 14 countries. That was 19 miles deep...if this is 14 miles deep, thats not good.

Now a 8.2 aftershock. Sick. Let's hope everyone learned from 2004 and stays safe and minimal damage on land.

So far Aftershocks of 6.0, 8.2 & 5.7 hit off Indonesia coast. New Tsunami warnings issued. A wave measuring less than 3 feet high rolled to Indonesia's coast.

The initial quake was a strike-slip, not a thrust quake, according to experts. In a strike slip quake, the earth moves horizontally rather than vertically and doesn't displace large volumes of water.
