Earthquake and Possible Tsunami(s)

Hope this doesn't turn into another catastrophe but just in case any sailors in the areas affected by this mornings earthquake haven't heard yet-take heed in Indian ocean coastal areas because a very large quake has been reported in Sumatra just a short time ago.

Best of luck to all.
