Indonesia Earthquake! Massive 7.8 Magnitude Quake Hits Asia

A 7.8 Magnitude Earthquake shakes Indonesia.

The Indonesia Earthquake is yet another in what has been a series of earthquakes from around the world. We have seen many earthquakes lately, including that from Haiti, Mexicali, the Philippines and more. Now, this 7.8 Indonesian Quake is the latest in this string.

A local tsunami watch is currently in effect for Indonesia and neighboring countries close to the Indonesia Earthquake.

The quake was centered 127 miles (204 km) west-northwest of Sibolga, Indonesia, and was at a depth of 28.6 miles (46 km), the USGS said.

Reports are still coming in as to the extent of damage from this massive earthquake in Indonesia. The poor structures and buildings may cause this to be a very deadly earthquake in Asia.
