This is a full blown science scandal. No doubt about it.
A large M7.9 (M7.8 revised) earthquake struck Sumatra Indonesia, very close to the two large earthquake epicenters from 2004 + 2005 which killed hundreds of thousands of people via multiple large tsunamis.
The great M9.1 mega-quake of December 2004, and the 2nd massive M8.6 on March 28, 2005 both occurred near the location struck today in 2016.
Today 10-11 years later , in 2016, we now see that the US Agencies tasked with covering , reporting, monitoring, and warning the public about tsunami threats have officially CLOSED SHOP in the far West Pacific + Indian ocean.
Yes, the US Government has made a very unwise decision to NOT REPORT TSUNAMIS which occur in the West Pacific + Indian ocean. Per their own words…
