The waves between 30 centimeters and one meter could hit the parts of Indonesia, while waves below 30 centimeters are expected for the coasts of the Philippines.The world’s largest archipelago, Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because of its location on the pacific “Ring of Fire”, an arch of volcanoes and fault line in the Pacific Basin. There is no immediate report from causalities or any kind of damage.

If a tsunami occurs, the nearest communities of Tabukan Tengah on North Sulawesi could at risk within an hour. The waves could also reach as far as Okinawa in southern Japan, Taiwan, the U.S. territory of Guam, Marshall Islands in the Pacific, Solomon Island and Papau New Guinea within next six hours.People staying on the tiny Sangihe Islands, which lies close to the epicenter in Indonesia, ran out of their homes as the quake hit.

    Hi. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much
    more useful than ever before.
