Scientists warn of tsunami's second coming

Quote From Source:


The December 26, 2004 earthquake off the northwestern coast of Sumatra had a magnitude of 9.3, making it the second most powerful earthquake ever recorded, surpassed only by a 9.5 monster in Chile in 1960.

The quake wrenched up the sea floor along a 1,200-km line, unleashing waves that towered up to 15 metres and scoured the coastlines of the northern Indian Ocean.

Earthquake experts are usually loath to make predictions, but on this question they ditch their traditional reserve.

They say: Not only will a tsunami-generating quake happen again, it is likely to occur at almost the same place -- and at any time.
