(9/17/2007)

On Wednesday, September 12, 2007, the West Sumatran provinces of Benkulu and Padang were shaken by a powerful 8.4 magnitude earthquake, followed by more than 60 significant aftershocks that continue to rattle the area. Hundreds of homes were destroyed on Sumatra's coast and the nearby Mentawai islands with the death toll now standing at 14 and expected to rise. Several tsunami warnings were issued in connection with the quakes and later rescinded by the National Meteorological Agency.

Quakes Far From Bali

The epicenters of the seismic activity from the recent series of earthquakes are located some 1,000 kilometers from Bali which was completely isolated from tremors that were felt as far away as Jakarta and Singapore. When monitoring natural disasters in Indonesia it is important to remember that the Republic is equal in geographical breadth to the United States and that the distance from the West Sumatran quake-affected area to Bali is roughly equivalent to the distance from Chicago to Miami.

In short, with the exception of concerned pauses to monitor televised newscasts of recovery efforts underway in Western Sumatra, it's business as usual in Bali following the earthquakes in Indonesia's western regions.
