Omg.. another Tsunami??

A massive underwater earthquake with a magnitude of 7.7 has struck off the eastern coast of Indonesia, according to the US Geological Survey.
The quake reportedly took place at 0158 local time on Saturday morning (1658 GMT on Friday) in the Banda Sea.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

In December 2004, a huge earthquake off Indonesia's coast killed hundreds of thousands of people by triggering a tsunami across the Indian Ocean.

There is no immediate risk of a tsunami from the latest quake, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre reports.

According to the US Geological Survey, the epicentre of the quake was at a point some 195km (120 miles) south of the city of Ambon at a depth some 342km (212 miles) below sea level.

Its not always a punishment bro :)



Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle (sal Allaahu alayhi waSalam) said, "Five are regarded as martyrs: They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building etc., and the martyrs in Allah's Cause."

(sahih Bukhari)



wa Allaahu a'lam. (and Allaah Almighty knows best)
