Default 11,00 or more dead

You may have heard or may have not. But a christmas quake has just killed 11,000+ over in the pacific. Partly were killed because of the 8.5 magnitude quake others killed because of a tsunami.

Sad news.

8.5? No. Again it as 8.9. Please don't misinform people here about what happened.

This is a sad incident where possibly over 20,000 people have perished, mainly because of the lack of warning systems for tidal waves.

This earthquake pushed the entire island of Sumatra south by 100 feet. Unprecedented. This is not a small island either. It isn't like Hawaii. It is like the size of the state of Florida plus a bit more.
