Breaking Earth News

A second powerful earthquake in as many days jolted south-east Asia today, triggering a regional tsunami warning, damaging hundreds of houses and creating panic along Indonesia's west coast.

At least nine people have been killed and 49 hurt in the twin tremors that caused tall buildings to sway in at least three countries, and sent panicked residents fleeing by foot, motorcycle and lorry.

All the deaths and injuries occurred in Indonesia, which was hit hardest by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. There was no immediate information on casualties in other countries.
