earthquake in northern sumatera

our neighbour country got hit with another earthquake. i was in the toilet in the office when it occured. i thought it was just me high on coffee. but when i got out. everyone was standing and talking and a friend that just got back from smoking session informed that lotsa people goes outside the building. so we join the others downstairs and after a few minutes. we decided to just go home. heheh. a colleague from medan got worried when we got to know the earthquake happened in his hometown and was busy calling2. but still.. we are glad nothing major happend..... yet. Either way, i pray for our friends safety there in aceh and all the places affected. the tsunami warning was also announced but no tsunami as of yet. hopefully things gets better.
