Indonesia, Aceh quake: Fresh tsunami warning after 8.2 aftershock

Via The Star :

" Indonesia has issued a fresh tsunami warning after an aftershock with a preliminary magnitude of 8.2 shook its western coast.

The first 8.6-magnitude quake off Aceh province, hours earlier, spawned a wave around 80cm high but caused no serious damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the strong temblor that followed was centered 16km beneath the ocean around 615km from the provincial capital, Banda Aceh."
