    Yes Ravi there was..

    According to information available, there has been a massive earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale rocked Indonesia on Wednesday afternoon. Indonesia's geophysical agency issued tsunami warning following the quake whose epicentre was in Aceh. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued Indian Ocean-wide tsunami warning.

    Tremors were also felt in Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Patna and several other cities on the eastern coast of India.

    Kindly warn members not to go near the sea and be careful about any after effects. There is no need to panic.

    The tremors were indeed strong in Chennai. I was in 9th floor of my office building and we felt the tremor continuously for about 20-25 seconds. We vacated the building and just back to my seat again.

    Yes we too felt the tremor. We were in a meeting room in 4th and the Projector fitted on the roof was shaking slightly and the projected image could be seen shaking for a few minutes. Initially nobody knew what was happening.

    The hindi news channels have gone ballistic as well. One of them is showing Tsunami clips from youtube.

    I hope there's no Tsunami anywhere.

    As usual Indian Media has started to exaggerate the news from all corners. To my knowledge, there is no tsunami yet. There is only warning issued to 28 countries.
