Re: Oh no!! Earthquake rocks Indonesia and Tsunami watch is underway....

Here are some maps that show where it hit.

It's pretty far from Bali, which is just east of Java. The main worry for the tourney would be a tsunami.

I hope there wasn't a lot of destruction.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

I just saw this on the news. A warning was been issued to a possible tsunami, but currently no big waves have been detected.

Our ladies will be fine. There might be zillions of casualties elsewhere but our ladies will be fine.

So don't worry vettipooh.

OMFG! Apparently the peeps working the night shift felt a mild tremor at my workplace! I'm kinda pissed I wasn't there to experience it. but I'm glad it wasn't anything major for us!

I hope everyone is ok!

Re: Oh no!! Earthquake rocks Indonesia and Tsunami watch is underway....

it's pretty far from bali, but still, if you know last time people in africa died...

I've been to bali, and all the hotels in nusa dua are at the coast
but I don't think they will have a problem, this part of bali is made for the rich people so they will be safe for sure. I'm worried about the other people ...

Re: Oh no!! Earthquake rocks Indonesia and Tsunami watch is underway....

Apparently there were 2 earthquakes...CNN says one was 8.0 and one 7.9...but the usgs site shows 7.9 and 5.1. I guess we'll know more soon. Scary stuff.
