Tsunami & Earthquake Rocks Indonesia Again

A few years past another Earthquake that rocked Indonesia, yet another monster has landed in Sumatra sending a Tsunami directly into Samoa. No confirmed casualties of the earthquake at this point but I'm sure the details, and information will be pouring in soon.

Al Jazeera first reported the massive Earthquake:
"A powerful underwater earthquake has struck off the the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island.

The 7.9 magnitude earthquake on Wednesday damaged hundreds of houses, destroyed bridges and started fires in the costal city of Padang, witnesses told local television.

It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.

"Hundreds of houses have been damaged along the road," the Reuters news agency quoted a witness in Padang as saying. "
