Indonesia Rocked By 6.2 Earthquake
Saturday, May 27, 2006 - reddit
I don't normally do news, but this is really important. Indonesia took some very hard hits from the Christmas Tsunami, and it just keeps getting worse for the unfortunate people who live there. Java, Indonesia, was struck by a magnitude 6.2 earthquake at 22:51:04 UTC, about 10 hours ago. CNN is reporting 270 dead, the New York Times says 450, while other news outlets are reporting as many as 1300 people have been killed. It is believed that the quake may have an impact on the already unstable volcano, Mount Merapi. As of 4:23AM EDT, none of the US 24-hour cable news networks are reporting on the story. Don't worry, I'm sure it'll all blow over, just like Katrina did.
