Update 2: Tsunami Warning for the Indian Ocean

Via an instant message from Enda Nasution who stated that someone called up Radio Elshinta FM, a local station in Indonesia with the following information:
"There is a casualty report coming in. Apparently there is a tsunami threat, hundreds of houses destroyed. Location reported at Pangandaran, this is a tourist spot in Western Java province. Indonesian TV have interviewed some people who have said that they were looking at a 6 meter wave. The quake was felt by those on the ground in Jakarta."

Minor Update:
Another TV station has reported that the water only reached about stomach level, 500m from the beach. Enda says that there are no further information from the media for now and that people are still listening to radio reports and those calling in.
