A 7.9 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of western Indonesia, the US Geological Survey (USGS) reports.

There have been no immediate reports of damage.

The USGS said the earthquake struck at 19:49 local time (12:49 GMT). It said the epicentre was 808km (502 miles) south-west of the city of Padang, and 10km deep.

Indonesian officials issued a tsunami warning for the regions of West Sumatra, North Sumatra and Aceh.

Australia also issued a tsunami warning for Cocos Island and Christmas Island, in the Pacific and put a watch in place for the western Australian coast, including the city of Perth.

I hope there will be no tsunami or a minor local one. From the chart at link below it seems past earthquakes didn't generate tsunamis (or minor local ones).

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Sometimes, I feel like if I just remain calm and deal with this headache, Sumatra will be just fine. The Tsunami will reach all the way around the population centers of Indonesia and let them poor people go without harm.
