Study Sees Tsunami Threat to 2 Indonesian Cities

Earth News: Indonesia

Dec 04, 2006
Two Indonesian cities that escaped the devastating tsunamis of December 2004 are at risk of inundation over the next few decades from undersea earthquakes predicted along the coast of Sumatra, researchers say. The researchers, using computer models, produced simulations showing that a major earthquake could send a series of waves 15 to 20 feet high sweeping ashore around Padang or Bengkulu, coastal cities of 800,000 and 350,000 just south of the Equator on Sumatra’s Indian Ocean
coast. Many seismologists say such quakes are inevitable off the coast near those cities.
All you need to know about killer waves, and the stories of survival in the devastating aftermath.
