Tsunami warning does not include Thailand | Thaiger

THAILAND: The Thai Meteorological Department, which runs the National Disaster Warning Center in Nonthaburi, has not issued a tsunami warning – or even a preliminary tsunami warning (advising that a tsunami may strike Thailand) – on its website following major earthquakes in Indonesia and Japan this morning.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) Department on its website reports that the earthquake in Indonesia recorded 6.6 on the Richter scale and occurred at 7 am Thai time. Its epicenter was more than 2,600 kilometers from Jakarta.

The Indonesian authorities quickly issued a tsunami warning, which has since been lifted.

In Japan, an earthquake measuring 6.9 Richters struck at 7:20 am Thai time, some 125 kilometers south-southwest of Kushiro on the island of Hokkaido – about 775km north-northeast of Tokyo.

The Hokkaido earthquake was followed by two major aftershocks: one at 7:32 am, measuring 5.4 Richters, and another at 8:08 am measuring 5.0 Richters.
