New Indonesian Quake

News reports say that an 8.2 magnitude quake (Richter scale) has struck the same fault line as the Dec. 26th, 2004 quake (9.0) that caused the massively destructive tsunami. Monday's quake epicenter was just off the northern Sumatra coast and between two smaller islands, and located at 18.6 miles underground. It occured at around 11 p.m. local time.

Tsunami warnings have been given to all the surrounding regions.

P.S. I know that this isn't strictly dino related. (But plate tectonics are involved!)
