Magnitude 8.6 quake off Indonesia

A magnitude 8.6 earthquake has occurred off the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

A tsunami watch has been issued for the entire Indian Ocean.

Details are few this morning but I don't see how this could be anything but bad.

Our prayers go out to the people effected by the quake

Some more information from EarthSky. Conditions may not be as bad as first thought
