    The USGS advised officials in the area to move people inland, and Thai officials were among the first to issue a tsunami warning for the Andaman Sea.

    No reports of injury or damage had been received from the region. The Dec. 26 quake that launched the massive tsunami was a 9.0, the USGS said.

    Monday's quake epicenter was just off the northern Sumatra coast and between two smaller islands, and located at 18.6 miles underground. It occured at around 11 p.m. local time.

    The Dec. 26 quake was also off the coast of Sumatra and just north of Monday's quake.


    I just hope the loss of life isn't as staggering as last time.

    Oh no...

    I really hope that these natural disasters calm down, especially in that region. The people cannot handle any more...so many of them are living in fear of another tsunami.
