I did not feel the tremor that was said to have hit my area around 2 pm today because I slept just a few minutes back. Tsunami warning was given and schools, colleges, offices were closed. There is a lot of traffic jam in most part of Chennai city. Now people are gathering near marina beach-- on the thinking that tsunami may not trike Chennai. I think still warning for tsunami is there in Indonesia.

I am from Indonesia. You are right. Indonesia had a tsunami warning. Precisely to the region of Aceh. Earthquakes have repeatedly occurred. I hope the Tsunami, it will not happen. If there is, hopefully there are not many casualties. Very sadly, have to listen to news like this. I hope, prayers of all members of myLot, so that the tsunami did not happen, in my country.

lynboobsy -- Are you from indonesia or Philipines? thank God tsunami has not struck. But there were strong tremors in West Bengal and Tamil nadu. Indahfth: yes. Indonesia is one of the countries which is affected by tsunami, earthquake more. I wish and pray that tsunami should not hit Indonesia, India or any other country. Damages are difficult to explain and bear. it causes enormous loss to national and to families.

Oh gosh! I hope that it doesn’t hit near where you are. I’ve seen them on TV and it’s a devastating thing to have to go through.. lives lost and homes and businesses destroyed.

I am interested in knowing about Kol because I was in Kol in 1970s for two years - then I was also near Siliguri. a place I cannot forget - because I spend my active days over there and had an excellent hospitality from the local people. They liked me very much.

Nowadays there are a lot of disaster in the world and you can know about them thanks to the globalisation. Through the internet all the world is connected and can communicate easily to each other. Anyway it is better to be ready and try to take measures in order to prevent disasters the best way.

Natural disasters cannot be prevented. But the information can be passed on to the other side of the world through internet and damages reduced.

You're right. Natural disasters cannot be prevented. Actually I wanted to say that people should have some food, water, basic medicins or a radio in the case that a disaster occurs. Also people should be informed what to do when a disaster occurs. Have a nice day.

I have experienced two earthquakes in Hyderabad. The first one was rather slow, and I could feel something connect with the earth's center through the pit of my stomach. It may have lasted just a few seconds, but the feeling was terrifying. The second one was still worse.. It was at a great speed..almost like lightening bolt in the earth below the building. Best area is Ooty. Not likely to experience earthquakes and things for a long time. :) Dont worry, everything will be fine. Take care.

vandana: thanks for the response. Ooty area also had some tremors a few years back. Thank God that Hyderabad earth quake did not become so very deep--like Gujarat Latur earth quake.

That could have been a landslide..:) But geologically, Ooty and Nilgiris are the safest places in India..

hello ravi, Our country is also in danger and our government announces the safety measure for our countrymen particularly here in Manila. But our case is not about this tsunami, but a rocket debris. here's the link http://ph.news.yahoo.com/worst-case-scenario-evacuation-luzon-201715257.html Regarding India and Indonesia- let's pray for the safety of everyone :)

jaiho: thanks for the response. yes. Phil is also in danger. But now recent reports say that we may not have tsunami. However tonight when we sleep many of us will have fear. My wife was in a hotel near Mylapore tank --Kapaleeswarar Temple -- She says they experienced tremor for nearly 10 seconds. but many others say it was for two seconds only. I wish we escape --Indonesia, Phili, India and all the countries from earth quake and tsunami.

I don't think I would be hanging out at the beach to see if a tsunami was going to bypass Chennai. A tsunami can hit fast and you would not have enough time to react. I would think they would take past incidences into consideration. Best Wishes!

yes. but curiosity prevailed over safety. thousands of people were standing in the beach on the tsunami expected day in spite of warning by police. good day

Hello ravisivan, This is more of a an alert to people who live by the sea side. Since you live in Chennai it is likely that you or the other people might have had the alarm of it. But in whatsoever condition it is better to remain alert of tsunami or Earthquake. The way global warming is increasing it is not unlikely that such natural disaster could strike at any time.
@ravisivan (14051)

You are right. global warming is the main reason for such experiences. we should be alert. but we cannot prevent them happening if we are destined to have them. thank G they did not strike us this time.

You really lucky to have been in bed and more so if the tsunami did not come your way. I feel sorry to the young in schools and colleges but these are misfortunate of nature that we must experience. I hope India recovers in time from the tsunami and not forgetting all the people going through the same scare.
