7.7 Earthquake in Sumatra

We have been getting some emails of concerns of people who have heard about the recent earthquake here in Indonesia. We just wanted to post and let family & friends know that even though the earthquake was in Indonesia it was in Sumatra. We are living in central Java which is still very far away from Sumatra and we were not effected by it here. Thanks for the emails and checking in on us! :)

Here is some info on the earthquake at the one in 2004 which you might remember:

(April 7) -- A 7.7-magnitude earthquake rattled Indonesia's Sumatra island this morning, sparking fires, felling utility poles and triggering a small tsunami that sent panicked coastal residents running for higher ground.About a dozen injuries were reported, but most were only minor.

In December 2004, the 9.1-magnitude quake off the coast of Aceh triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed quarter of a million people in 13 countries including Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand.
