Indonesia quake felt in India, issues tsunami warning

NEW DELHI Wed Apr 11, 2012 2:46pm IST

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India issued a tsunami warning for its eastern coast on Wednesday after a 8.9 magnitude quake in Indonesia shook major cities, causing panic and sending people fleeing onto the streets.

India's tsunami warning center said waves measuring up to 6 metres were expected along parts of its eastern coast, which was heavily hit by the 2004 tsunami. Smaller waves were expected to hit the remote Andaman and Nicobar islands.
