8.9 MAJOR EARTHQUAKE Sumatra, Indonesia - Tsunami Warning
April 11,  2012
 An earthquake with an initial magnitude of 8.9 has struck under the sea off Indonesia's northern Aceh province.  Residents seeking higher ground.
This quake is over 9.0 as USGS minimizes magnitudes.

A tsunami warning was issued for the entire Indian Ocean Wednesday after a powerful 8.7-magnitude earthquake was recorded off Indonesia coast, centered 20 miles beneath the ocean floor around 308 miles from Banda Aceh.
People on Twitter said tremors were felt in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and India.
High-rise apartments and offices on Malaysia's west coast shook for at least a minute.

A giant 9.1-magnitude quake off the country on Dec. 26, 2004, triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed 230,000 people, most in Aceh.

Power is down in Aceh province
The electricity is down, there are traffic jams to access higher ground.
People near the coast in six Thai provinces were ordered to higher ground.
One expert told the BBC the Wednesday quake as a "strike-slip" fault, meaning a more horizontal shift of the ground under the sea as opposed to a sudden vertical shift, and less risk of a large displacement of water triggering a tsunami.

Brit PM David Cameron was in Indonesia at the time

HUGE 8.2 aftershock
Indonesia has issued a fresh tsunami warning after an aftershock with a preliminary magnitude of 8.2 shook its western coast.
The first 8.6-magnitude quake off Aceh province, hours earlier, spawned a wave around 30 inches (80 centimeters) high but caused no serious damage.

Indonesia encompasses Singapore, Malaysia as far as news is concerned.

Indonesia Signs Deal For $10.9 Billion Bridge Linking Sumatra to Java
Zakir Hussain - Straits Times | April 21, 2012

The islands of Java and Sumatra are a step closer to being linked for the first time in their history by Indonesia’s largest-ever infrastructure project. The China Railway Construction Corporation has inked a deal to invest in the RP 100 trillion ($10.9 billion) Sunda Strait Bridge to link the islands — the largest agreement signed during President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s visit to Beijing last month. The state-owned company is behind several rail projects in Africa and the Middle East.

“The challenges are huge, but this will pave the way for a breakthrough,” said Agung Prabowo, president director of Graha Banten Lampung Sejahtera, the Indonesian consortium behind the project. “We’re not out to break any records, but we want the bridge realized, as it will benefit people on both sides.”

His consortium brings together the provincial governments of Lampung in Sumatra and Banten in Java, as well as a subsidiary of the Artha Graha conglomerate run by tycoon Tommy Winata. It was set up to lay the groundwork for the bridge in 2007.

It is now waiting for a legal guarantee from the Indonesian government, which is expected to come within weeks. The government is eager for foreign investors to take part in building bridges, highways and other facilities to spur the economy.

The 30km bridge had been envisioned by the country’s first president Sukarno since the 1960s, but only recently did steady economic growth make its construction more realistic.

A feasibility study is in the works, and construction is to start in 2014.

The bridge will link 80 per cent of Indonesia’s 240 million people by road and rail, and will take some 10 years to complete. The world’s largest ships will be able to pass under it, as the bridge will stand 80m at its highest.

Details About the Sunda Strait Bridge

Indonesia’s longest bridge at present is the 5.4km-long Suramadu Bridge, completed in 2009, that links Surabaya in East Java with the island of Madura. It, too, was built by a consortium of Indonesian and Chinese companies over six years.

Officials on both sides of the strait near where the new bridge will start — in Anyer, Java and Bakauheni, Sumatra — are already gearing up for it, with the Banten and Lampung governments publicizing the bridge to attract investors to set up shop there.

The connection will also intentionally start at Anyer, 40km south of the port of Merak, from which most ferries to Sumatra currently operate.

Geologists and disaster management officials have given the all-clear to the proposed design, by renowned Indonesian architect Wiratman Wangsadinata, which would be able to withstand an earthquake of magnitude 9 as well as eruptions of the Anak Krakatau volcano some 50km away. It was formed after the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa

“The Sunda Strait is likely to be the site of a major earthquake,” Professor Masyhur Irsyam of the Bandung Institute of Technology said this week. “But this is only a problem if structures are not designed to be strong enough to resist it.”

The bridge will also be 200km from the undersea fault where the Indo-Australian and Eurasian plates meet. As a result, the impact of a tsunami on the bridge will be limited, according to simulations, National Disaster Management Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.

But forget about hiking across the bridge for now: Winds at the strait are often fierce, and the crossing by ferry can stretch up to four hours.

In its report on the deal, the Beijing Review cited China Institute of International Studies president Qu Xing as saying that there is great demand for funds and technology in Indonesian infrastructure.

“China is highly experienced in building railways, highways, bridges and irrigation projects, and considers Indonesia one of its major prospective investment destinations,” it said.

Caribbean again put on tsunami watch
April 30, 2012  
A leading expert at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is urging the Caribbean's 40 million people to be prepared for a tsunami, two years ahead of a planned early warning system for the region.
Wendy Watson-Wright, assistant director-general and executive secretary of the UNESCO-Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, has agreed with other leading tsunami experts that it is a case of "when, not if" the region would be struck by the giant waves triggered by earthquakes and volcanic activity, Watson-Wright noted.

"Lurking beneath the azure waters that wash up on countless coastal and island beaches and vacation spots is the potential for a devastating tsunami," she said.
In addition to the 40 million people living in the region, she said 22 million people visit the Caribbean annually, making the region "extremely vulnerable to the impacts of tsunamis".

Are All These Earthquakes Normal?
April 7, 2010
-  Folks ask USGS “Is this the end of the world?
4 major quakes in 4 months, in Haiti, Chile, Mexico and Indonesia, has prompted a tinge of panic.  Earthquakes can also occur in clusters. An average year will produce 17 quakes with a magnitude 7.0 or greater.   Almost all of the deaths occurred in Haiti when residents were crushed by poorly designed and constructed homes and structures.  In the last 20 years the number of seismographs around the globe has increased dramatically. Right now, four thousand monitors measure the Earth's movements.

But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve.
Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates?
Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live?
But as for me and my family (house), we will serve the LORD!

Joshua 24:15  -  http://nasb.scripturetext.com/joshua/24.htm

Since the turn of the century, absolutely not - they've slowly but surely have increased not only in intensity, but in frequency as well.

4 killed, 10 missing in Indonesian floods
May 8, 2012  JAKARTA — Floods carrying volcanic debris swept through a town in eastern Indonesia Wednesday killing four people, including a nine-year-old child, and leaving 10 others missing, a government official said.
A further 15 people were injured after floodwaters rampaged through 11 villages in Ternate City in North Maluku province, national disaster mitigation agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.

"Following heavy rains during the night, volcanic floods hit early morning at 2:00 am (1700 GMT)," Nugroho said, adding that more than 280 people were evacuated to government offices and schools.
"Four people have died, 10 are missing and 15 have been injured. Fifty-eight families, or 284 people, have been evacuated," he said.

Two bridges and 15 homes were completely destroyed by the floods, while 173 other homes were damaged, Nugroho said.
The floods carried volcanic mud from Mount Gamalama, which forms the entire island of Ternate in the Maluku chain, which erupted and spewed a column of ash 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) into the air in December.

Two rivers on the eastern side of the volcano overflowed after Wednesday's heavy rains carried volcanic debris down to the affected residential areas, Nugroho said.
The Indonesian archipelago has dozens of active volcanoes. The country's most active volcano, Mount Merapi in central Java, killed more than 350 people in a series of violent eruptions in 2010

Malaysian island region inundated with massive volcanic mud
24 Feb 2012  
- Volcanic mud has been spewing at least twice to three times more actively than normal since last week. This has created an overflow of the sulphuric substance that has spread over an area as big as a football field. Apart from excited guests at the nearby Tabin Wildlife Resort, the number of wild animals, too, appears to have increased at the mud pool. Volcanic mud is believed to contain curative properties with iodine, bromine, calcium and magnesium. According to Wikipedia, since the mud solution has no significant toxic substance, it is used as a curative agent for mud baths at spas. Mud baths have existed for thousands of years and can now be found in high-end spas in many countries of the world. The mineral-rich pool serves as a salt lick for animals at the Tabin Wildlife Reserve, including endangered species such as the Sumatran rhino and the pygmy elephants. On a normal day, mud would continuously spew from within the pool and dry up in a day or two once it spills over. Last week, however, according to a wildlife ranger who declined to be named, it was rather active judging by the overflow. “Earlier last week, we saw it to be more active and when we returned a few days later, the mud had flowed over a big area,” he said, adding that people and animals had suddenly started coming to the reserve in droves. Nestled amid 120,500ha of dipterocarp rainforest and tropical plants, some of which are rich in medicinal and therapeutic values, the reserve is a popular haunt for bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. Besides the rhinoceroses and elephants, it is also home to the clouded leopard, sambar deer, exotic wild birds and the orangutan. http://theextinctionprotocol.word...ed-with-massive-volcanic-mud-flow

No damage, tsunami after 6.6 quake hits off Indonesia's Sumatra
July 24, 2012  JAKARTA (Reuters) - A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.6 struck off northern Sumatra in Indonesia on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but authorities said there was little chance of a tsunami.
The quake was felt by residents on the island of Simeulue off Sumatra's northwest coast but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
"The quake has no tsunami potential," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency. "Some people ran away from their houses. We don't have any house damage."
The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a widespread, destructive tsunami after the quake, about 330 km (205 miles) southeast of Indonesia's Banda Aceh. It said there was a "very small possibility" of a local tsunami.

6.4 Quake Strikes Indonesia Near Bali
Sep. 3, 2012  
A powerful 6.4-magnitude earthquake rattled the Indonesian island of Bali early this morning, but no destruction, injuries, or tsunami warning have been reported so far, AFP reports. The epicenter was 172 miles south of Denpasar, 5 miles deep in the Indian Ocean. Indonesia is located on the so-called "Ring of Fire," where the clashing of continental plates leads to regular volcanic and seismic events.

Strong 6.0 quake hits Indonesia
September 08, 2012
 A MODERATELY strong earthquake has hit eastern Indonesia, causing panic among residents, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. No tsunami warning was issued.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 6.0-magnitude quake struck off the eastern province of Papua. It says it was fairly shallow, just 20 kilometers beneath the sea, which often causes more shaking than deeper quakes.

Witnesses said shocked residents and hotel guests in Nabire town ran outside screaming.
Indonesia's meteorology and geophysics agency said there was no danger of a tsunami.
Indonesia has frequent earthquakes because of its location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
