Indonesia port open after quake, Chennai closes
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Indonesia's port in Banda Aceh remained open after an 8.7 magnitude earthquake struck on Wednesday, while Chennai port shut due to a tsunami watch issued for the whole Indian Ocean, two port authority officials said.
The quake struck 308 miles (500 km) southwest of the city of Banda Aceh, on the northern tip of Indonesia's Sumatra island, at a depth of 20.5 miles, the U.S. Geological survey said.
