Initially BMG (the Weather and Geology office) reported a 6.8 magnitude quake almost 300 kilometers south of the central Javanese city of Bandung. That means the quake occurred at sea, at only a depth of around 33 kilometers. That's 'good' enough to cause a tsunami as well, and so it happened. A several meters high wave struck many parts of the southern coast of the entire island.

Prosecutor: Bali bombings were to avenge Muslim deaths Four suspected Islamic militants went on trial today for their alleged roles in last year’s suicide bombings on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, attacks a prosecutor said were aimed at avenging Muslims’ deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan. If found guilty, they could face the death penalty under anti-terror laws. Security was tight at the Denpasar trials, the first to be held over the triple bombings that killed 20 people and were blamed on Jemaah Islamiyah, an al-Qaida-linked south-east Asian terror group.

Deadly ground Alinda-Jane Hannah, a New Zealander living in Phuket, was nearly killed by the Dec. 26 tsunami. Driving along a road in the beachside town of Kamala, she and her 3-year-old daughter Nakita-Rose were almost washed away by the waves as they swamped the eastern coast of the island. A sharp intimation of mortality revisited Hannah last week when a loudspeaker in a nearby mosque woke her shortly before midnight, warning of another tsunami on the way. Hannah fled to higher ground, together with tens of thousands of other locals and tourists. Now, she says, after three months of trying to forget the terror of Dec. 26, "all the awful thoughts are back."
