    BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - A large earthquake struck off Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the Andaman Sea late Monday, and the U.S. Geological Survey said it was a major quake measuring a magnitude of 8.2.

    Thai officials issued a warning of a possible tsunami, three months after a tsunami devastated parts of Indonesia and other countries in the region. The quake occurred at 11:09 p.m. local at a depth of nearly 19 miles, the USGS in Golden, Colo., said.

    Japan's Meteorological Agency measured the quake at magnitude 8.5.
    oh, not again.

    I hope not; but at least this time the warning is going out to open ears.

      Thats what the warnbing system (thought somewhat unreliable) is for...

      It was put in back in the 70s.. and it is still hard to determine if a tsumani will occure from an earthquake.... The system has helped save lifes.. and has had many false alarms....

      I hope nothing as devistating as the last one occurs...
