Posted by celebrityphotosnews on August 11, 2009


The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii on Monday said a tsunami watch is in effect in countries around Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean where a magnitude 7.7 earthquake occurred.

The areas in danger of a possible tsunami are India’s Andaman Islands, Myanmar’s capital of Yangon, Indonesia’s Banda Aceh, Thailand’s resort island of Phuket and Chittagong in Bangladesh, according to a bulletin issued by the center. The warning is in effect from one to three hours.

The U.S. Geological Survey pinpointed the epicenter of the 1:55 a.m. quake at 161 miles north of Port Blair in the India-administered Andaman Island and 21 miles deep.

Aceh in the northern tip of Sumatra was among the worst hit by the December 2004 Asian Tsunami triggered by a magnitude 9.1 to 9.3 earthquake off the coast of that Indonesian island. Some 230,000 people in 11 countries around the epicenter died from the said tsunami.
