BREAKING NEWS/April 11,2012: No Tsunami Alert in RP After Aceh 8.7-Quake
The Philippines is not included in the list of Tsunami Watch by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center that listed 28 countries including Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and India.
However, PhiVolcs‘ Renato Solidum says they are monitoring the situation. The PTWC says similar quakes “have the potential to generate a widespread destructive tsunami that can affect coastlines across the entire Indian Ocean basin.“
The quake is traced 30 kilometers under the sea near Aceh–the place in Indonesia where 200,000 people were killed during a tsunami in 2004.
