7.2 quake triggers tsunami on Java island

JAKARTA (AP): A powerful earthquake sent a two-meter-high tsunami crashing into a beach resort on Indonesia’s Java island Monday, damaging hotels and sending boats smashing into houses, a witness told a local radio station.

People fled to a local hill to escape the wave on Pangandaran beach in west Java, a woman identified as Teti told el-Shinta radio station.

“All the houses are destroyed along the beach,” she said. There was no immediate word on casualties. - AP

…anyway… wonder if the tsunami early warning worked?

“Sir! According to the Tsunami EW, a tsunami is going to happen in… 10 minutes ago! Waitaminute…”

  • I accidently Pressed the Tsunami Raising device aiming it straight to the south china sea…“Oopppsss”…

Watched CNN last night and a CNN correspondent in Jakarta said something like “… the warning system is in place but not fully operational yet. However, the people are already educated to see the physical signs of an incoming tsunami like receding shoreline…”

Well, I guess it’s those 60 missing people and 8 dead ones are the only ones close enough to see the signs but no fast enough to react to the 2 to 3 meters high waves.

Missing toll reached 100 as of today’s news.

From CNN

"… witness told el-Shinta he saw the ocean withdraw 500 meters (1,500 feet) from the beach a half-hour before the powerful wave smashed ashore, a typical phenomenon before a tsunami.

I could see fish jumping around on the ocean floor,” Miswan said. “Later I saw a wave like a black wall.”

DOH. You’d think that the lessons from 2 years ago would’ve been well hung out still in memory.
