Two huge quakes ( magnitudes 8.4 & 7.8 ) rocked Sumatra yesterday, killing 10, leveling towns and spawing a 10 foot tsunami. The two quakes occured on the same fault as the mammoth Dec '04 quake.

Another much weaker, but still very strong magnitude 6.2 quake struck Indonesia as well just hours after the second big one.
