Hopefully this is true.

India Cancels Tsunami Warning
World - Reuters

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India on Tuesday canceled a tsunami warning issued after a powerful earthquake off Indonesia's Sumatra island and said people could return home.

"About four hours have passed since the occurrence of the earthquake and no unusual sea conditions have been reported," said the interior ministry's disaster management unit.

"In view of this, the advice by the (India Meteorological Department) regarding the possibility of a tsunami stands canceled," it said in a statement. "People may go back to their homes."

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia - A powerful earthquake struck off Indonesia's west coast late Monday, killing hundreds of people whose homes collapsed on them and spreading panic across the Indian Ocean that another killer tsunami was on the way. Indonesia's vice president predicted up to 2,000 deaths.

But fears of a second tsunami catastrophe in just over three months eased within hours, as officials in countries at risk reported their coasts clear of the type of quake-spawned waves that ravaged a dozen countries in Asia and Africa on Dec. 26.

Almost all the deaths reported in the hours immediately after Monday's quake were on Indonesia's Nias island, off Sumatra's west coast, which was close to the epicenter.

"It is predicted — and it's still a rough estimate — that the number the victim of dead may be between 1,000 and 2,000, Vice President Jusuf Kalla told the el-Shinta radio station. He said the estimate was based on an assessment of damage to buildings, not bodies counted.

Here's a link to a number of organizations helping the victims of yesterday's earthquake for those of you who are moved to join in.

God bless.
