The Old Bali Blog « Earthquake Time Again: 7,3 hits Sulawesi and Maluku

A heavy 7,3 earthquake rocked Sulawesi and Maluku on Saturday 15th November 2014 and was big enough to generate a small tsunami that rolled up on the beaches a little while later.

Don't be fooled by an earthquake's strength: the 6,3 that hit Yogyakarta and Bantul in Central Java in 2006 killed 5,800, injured 37,000 and dusted off more than 60,000 homes.

Tip? When you go to bed at night, leave your keys in the front door so you're not left scrabbling around when your walls are caving in.
