Major Earthquake Strikes Indonesia, But Damage Appears Moderate
A major earthquake has shaken Indonesia's northwest island of Sumatra, prompting a brief tsunami warning and sending residents rushing for higher ground.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 7.7 magnitude earthquake occurred at sea about 215 kilometers northwest of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
The quake was felt throughout northern Sumatra and in Malaysia. Local news reports say that patients from some area hospitals were evacuated and that some residents fled to high ground in case of a tsunami. Electricity in some areas was cut off but so far no major damage has been reported.
The Indonesia Meteorology and Geophysics Agency issued a tsunami warning following the quake, but lifted it two hours later.
"Obviously after several years here we're kind of used to aftershocks. People react in a different way,"
