Minor tsunami attacks North Maluku

Posted by David Khoirul

A light swell of 10 centimeters has attacked Maluku, causing no damage in the island. The minor tsunami hit the coast of Halmahera in North Maluku, and is said to head to Bitung, Manado, in North Sulawesi.

BMKG earlier warned that a tsunami might be heading to Papua, North Maluku and North Sulawesi after the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in northeastern Japan.

There are no reports yet of swells hitting other coastal areas in Indonesia.
