    That's volcanic seismic activity, and the shake of a mountain exploding. The resulting tsunami was devastating.

    The previous earthquake my mum was at Padang, that was scary event for me, couldn't contact her not knowing is the biggest headache. She had seen PT Matahari Building collapsed and showroom cars flattened. After that, told her to reduce her travel to Padang, so this time she is safe and sound in Singapore.

    Anyway, my prayers and thoughts are for all to be safe with minimum damages.

    yes, the super big one is coming, if u observe the frequency of earthquakes around the world, they are getting more frequent as years passed ... make sure your dry cabinet can withstand shock impact ..

    Yes, we could imagine the ferocity as an entire island dissappeared, what's left is now called Anak Krakatoa.

    I think Singapore has got to be one of the safest place to be, we are on solid granite. We should be a thankful lot.

    it has global climate implication which is long lasting (at least 5 years)

    some people in indonesia believe the next time it erupts, it is the end of the world

    how are you guys relating the earthquakes to volcanic erruption..what happened in Krakatoa was a major volcanic activity, earthquakes are good in a sense they release the energy and in the end "preventing" these massive volcanic erruptions
