NO Tsunami Warning was issued for Borneo

KUALA LUMPUR: Sabah and Labuan residents have been advised to stay away from the coast due to rough seas and high sea level expected to occur between 6pm and midnight Friday but no tsunami warning was issued.

Malaysian Meteorological Department issued the reminder following the strong earthquake which hit northeast of Japan this afternoon.

The 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit the northeast coast of Honshu, Japan at 1.46pm, at 4,434km north-east of Kudat, Sabah. The earthquake triggered a tsunami in Japan.

However, no tsunami warning was issued for Malaysia.

has the tsunami reached Borneo? said...

Borneo (Sabah, Sarawak & Brunei) never felt the tsunami resulted by the Japan quake. We were very lucky indeed. Our prayers go to the victims in Japan and may may there be no devastating after shocks.
