On Wednesday, an 8.7 earthquake followed by strong aftershocks sent tremors through Indonesia and other countries off the Indian Ocean. The tremors caused traffic disruptions throughout Singapore, Thailand, India and Indonesia. In Chennai, India’s second-largest port, operations were suspended due to the tsunami warning, but Indonesia’s Banda Aceh port remained open. No immediate reports of major damage or casualties have been reported.
