The NOAA Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a Indian Ocean-wide Tsunami Watch Bulletin due to an earthquake off that applies to Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan Ministry of Defence quotes the Met department saying that:
“a tidel wave if cause by the earth quack will affect Sri Lanka between 7.45 p.m 8:30 p.m “
I don’t know if they have a spell check but never mind..
Apparently the danger areas are the east and south coasts. The ETAs for the arrival time of the waves seem a bit off – apparently those haven’t been updated as I write this.
Till further info develops here’s hoping for the best 🙂
