Two Earthquakes On Wednesday

Yesterday, two earthquakes hit two different parts of the world.

The first earthquake hit Indonesia and it could be felt even in Malaysia.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first 8.6-magnitude quake was centered 20 miles (33 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor around 269 miles (434 kilometers) from Aceh province, followed by an 8.2 magnitude aftershock  two hours later.

According to CNN, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami watch for the entire Indian Ocean but was lifted later.

Next, another eartquake hit Mexico.

The USGS said the first quake on Wednesday evening in the western state of Michoacan had a magnitude of 6.5 and was recorded at a depth of 12.4 miles.

It was followed by a second earthquake, of a magnitude of 6.9 and at a depth of 6.2 miles that hit somewhere near Baja California early Thursday morning.

Earthquake is a disaster but luckily both earthquakes did not caused any tsunami.

UFO Landed In Indonesia?

On January 24, 2011 a crop circle was found in an Indonesian paddy field in Sleman, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

I think that it is a UFO crop circle.

UFO means Unidentified Flying Object.

UFO could be an alien‘s spaceship.

It may have came from another planet.

I learn about crop circle from SimCity 3000 Unlimited.

Late Monday, a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in Sumatra caused a killer tsunami.

At least 113 people were killed and more than 500 people were missing.

The tsunami hit remote islands that takes about 12 hours boat trip from Padang.

Those islands are popular surfing spots.

10 villages were swept away by waves as high as 3 meters (10 feet).

On Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the tsunami, Mount Merapi in central Java erupted.

At least 25 people were killed in this disaster.

Government volcanologist Surono told AFP that they heard 3 explosions around 6 pm (1100 GMT) spewing volcanic material as high as 1.5 kilometres (one mile) and sending heat clouds down the slopes.

Thousands of people were in makeshift emergency shelters late Tuesday.

The volcano is on the highest alert level.

Mount Merapi is Indonesian most active volcano.

Scientists have warned that pressure building beneath Merapi’s lava dome could trigger its most powerful explosion in years.

If that really happens, it will cause a great disaster.

Indonesia is in the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’.

On Sunday, Mount Sinabung on the north of Sumatra island erupted; and on Monday it erupted again.

The volcano was inactive for four centuries or four hundred years; since 1600.

It shot ash 2 km or 1.5 miles into the air.

The eruption triggered the highest red volcano alert.

About 21,000 people left their houses because it is very dangerous to be near a volcano if it erupts.

Hot lava and burning rocks from the volcano can burn houses, trees and everything on its way down the volcano.

Volcanic ash covered trees, plants, houses and everything in the area.

People leaving the area were also covered by ash.

Some flight to Medan and Sibolga were delayed.

Indonesia in on the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

In April, 2010 the volcanic ash from Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland closed airspace and airports all over Europe and thousands and thousands of passengers were stranded all over the world.

I wonder if Malaysian airspace and airport will be closed if the volcanic ash problems get worse …
