Another tsunami off the coast of Java in Indonesia has killed 86 people. This tsunami, like the big one last year, was caused by an undersea quake measuring 7.7 magnitude. I think it is fair to say that because of the seismic craziness near Sumatra, and it’s not just Krakatoa (aka Krakatau), living in beachfront property on the islands of Sumatra and Java is not highly recommended. Actually, based on last year’s quake and tsunami, anywhere near Sumatra where the earth does a little shake rattle and roll is probably not a good idea.
