Indonesien: starkes Erdbeben erschüttert Insel Sumatra

20min.ch meldet:
Ein Erdbeben der Stärke 7,4 hat Indonesien erschüttert. Der befürchtete grosse Tsunami blieb allerdings aus. Nach Angaben der US-Erdbebenwarte ereigneten sich die Erdstösse am Sonntag etwa 220 Kilometer südöstlich der Provinzhauptstadt Banda Aceh auf der Insel Sumatra unter dem Meeresboden. Mehrere Gebäude auf der Insel wurden beschädigt. An einem Kontrollturm des Flugplatzes nahe der Stadt Meulaboh gingen nach Angaben der Behörden Fensterscheiben zu Bruch, und im Mauerwerk traten Risse auf. Aus Angst vor weiteren Beben blieben viele Bewohner von Meulaboh auf den Strassen.
