Sri Lanka withdraws Tsunami Alert

This just in via a volunteer at the International Airport in Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka's meteorological department has withdrawn its tsunami warning and said it was safe for coastal residents to return to their homes despite a submarine earthquake near Indonesia.

Met chief P. M. Jayatilake said they decided to withdraw the tsunami warning as there were no reports of unusual wave activity anywhere in the neighbouring countries within the Indian Ocean. - this statement was released about 45 mins ago.
