Indonesia issues tsunami alert after Nicobar quake

Indonesian authorities issued a tsunami alert after a powerful earthquake struck near India's Nicobar Island, but said it was unlikely the waves would affect its shores.

'A warning has been sent to our office in Banda Aceh and they are transmitting it to the relevant institutions there' including the military and the police, said Meteorology and Geophysics Agency duty officer Rahmat.

But 'judging from the location, there is a very little likelihood that there will be an effect on our shores but we still have to be alert,' he told Agence France-Presse.

Rahmat, who goes by one name, said however that Indonesia did not yet have a mechanism by which to revoke tsunami warnings.
