    yeah, its a "tsunami bulletin" now... they downgraded it. The quake was also downgraded to a 7.0... which while still powerfull, the Indonesdia Tsunami of Death quake was about 100x bigger.

    It's already been called off and there's been no damage from what I hear so far. It's too far off the coast for any real damage.

    ummm.. the quake isn't big enough to cause damage, the distance isn't really a factor. Thats why people thousands of miles from the indian ocean one died...

    Glad to hear it's been downgraded. I just thought I'd post something for those that don't normally monitor the news. :cool1:
