After Indonesia earthquake, tsunami alert and tremors in India

A tsunami of between three to six metres is expected to hit the Nicobar Islands after an earthquake of 8.9 on the Richter scale hit Indonesia. A tsunami alert -which is less serious than a warning – has also been issued for the Eastern coast of India, the Andaman Islands, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Tremors were felt after that in Mumbai, Kolkata, and the southern part of Chennai. The tremors lasted for a few seconds. In Bhubaneshwar, people were seen running out of their homes and offices. No damage has been reported so far.

NDTV viewer AG Kalidass emailed from Bangalore to say, “We were feeling our building shaking.” Another viewer Shyam Agarwal writes, “I am from Kolkata. Just now a few minutes back heavy stroke of earthquake has been observed here.”
