As yet, no sign of tsunami

There is no sign of any tsunami after a major earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter scale hit off the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island on Monday night.

Since there has been no sign of a tsunami even after over three hours of the quake, there is unlikely to be one, the Meteorological and Geophysics agency in Indonesia said.

UN officials said though there was no report of any tsunami towards the east of the epicentre of the quake in the direction of Sumatra, it is yet to be assessed if there are waves progressing towards the west in the direction of Sri Lanka.
