Earthquake Alert / TSUNAMI ALERT

[DAY 2 UPDATE] : 13.45 Local time, woke up to find the place deserted, no cars around the apartment, thought everyone jumped ship without me. Damn! Dangerous tremors continue around the earthquake region since morning, with a 6.5 just more than an hour ago. Tsunami warnings have been lifted, but dont go surfing just yet because after shocks will persist until the ridge/ plate lines settle - Dont want a repeat of 2004. God Bless and Be Safe.
7.45 am/Sept 13 (Kajang, Selangor) Little sleep, another big one 20 minutes ago. Felt stronger than the one last night. Early morning jolt, little response from the local residents. Will wait and see what happens. Tracking IRIS now. Be safe.
ALWAYS STAY ALERT TO TSUNAMI WARNINGS. QUAKES OCCURRING AT THE SAME REGION/ UNDERSEA REGION.
8.11 AM/ 8.55 AM (IRIS) :

Exactly same as yesterday, IRIS is not upgrading last evenings Quake to 8.2 or 8.4 yet. Looks like 7.9 is the biggest of the After shocks or a new one all together. Need more updates. Please leave comments if you felt any. (USGS reports last evenings Quake at 8.4)

Strange but people has stopped running down the apartment unlike previous times, idiots. Even my house mate went back to sleep. Hope nothing serious happened in Sumatra. Waiting for breaking news.

The power of nature. The smallness of ourselves. Do you believe these are all natural happenings? I find myself wondering if someone isn't experimenting with weather and climate control??? Either way we are but pawns in this game.Best wishes.
We can nothing about nature's calamity!

The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight.
