Tsunami Hits Java

Yahoo News is reporting that a tsunami hit the island of Java today.

Regional bulletins that the 7.7-magnitude undersea earthquake was strong enough to send a killer wave steaming toward the country worst hit by the 2004 Asian tsunami did not reach the victims, because Indonesia’s main island has no warning system.

Worldchanging links to a few sites that are posting updates.

I haven’t heard any word about how UNESCO’s tsunami warning system functioned during the short period before this disaster occurred.
