A Shock from Sumatra Earthquake

A powerful earthquake with 7.9 on the Richter scale hit southern Sumatra at about 6.17pm and Malaysia felt the slight effect... I am not aware of it until I read theStar news online. During that hour, I was on my way back home from all the stressful office work. Did you all felt the tremors???

It seems like Malaysians in Klang Valley, including the KL City Centre had exit from tall buildings! This shows how panic the earthquake(though just slight effect) caused....

In the JayaOne complex here, reports came in of shaking furniture and swaying fixtures.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a tsunami alert for Indonesia, Malaysia, India and Thailand, The Associated Press said.

However, the Malaysian Meteorological Department said it has not issued a warning for Malaysia because it believes the waves will not reach Malaysian shores.
