Tsunami fears

A earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale hit Indonesia yesterday triggering a local Tsunami killing atleast 60 people in the region. The Tsunami fear has put Tamil Nadu on high alert especially coastal areas like Chennai, Cuddalore, Nagapattinam, Tirunelveli, and Tiruchendur, which bore the brunt of the December 2004 Tsunami. The sea was by and large calm with the exception of Tirunelveli and Tiruchendur. Tamil Nadu DGP D Mukherjee told reporters that all coastal regions have been put on high alert but so far no evacuations were made.
