Tsunami Warnings Lifted After Indonesia Quake
Tsunami warnings triggered by a powerful earthquake and aftershock off the coast of Indonesia have been lifted in countries surrounding the Indian Ocean.
An 8.6-magnitude earthquake southwest of Indonesia's Sumatra island on Wednesday morning (GMT) was followed hours later by an 8.2-magnitude aftershock.
Tsunami warnings were issued in countries around the region, including in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.
Terrified people fled their homes and headed for higher ground, as disaster officials scrambled to assess the nature of the seismic events.
The US Geological Survey said the first quake originated 20 miles (33km) underground and 271 miles (437km) from Banda Aceh, on Sumatra.
The second incident was detected 10 miles (16km) beneath the ocean floor and some 383 miles (617km) from the Indonesian town.
Just before the powerful aftershock, reports had said the sea at Simeulue Island, south of Sumatra, had receded by about 10 metres.
