As most of you know, 28 countries are expected to be affected by the earthquake/tsunami that hit Sumatra early this morning. An 8.7 magnitude earthquake struck about 200 miles off the coast of Sumatra. Another one just happened now with a magnitude of 8.2 according to Oman News Agency (ONA).
The coast of Dhofar & Al Wusta will probably be affected tonight starting at 7 p.m. ONA has advised all citizens to be prepared and to stay away from the ocean from 7 p.m tonight and until tomorrow morning.
This probably means that tide will go out a few hundred meters. That's what happened in the 2004 tsunami.
Please pray for those affected. Let this not turn into another catastrophe.
