Tsunami alert

Posted: 01 Apr 2014 06:56 PM PDT


A powerful magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck off Chile's northern coast Tuesday night, causing landslides and setting off a tsunami that forced an evacuation of coastal areas. There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage, but buildings shook in nearby Peru and in Bolivia's high altitude capital of La Paz.

The U.S. Geological Survey initially reported the quake at 8.0, but later upgraded the magnitude. It said the quake struck 61 miles (99 kilometers) northwest of the Chilean city of Iquique at 8:46 p.m., hitting a region that has been rocked by numerous quakes over the past two weeks. Aftershocks followed, including a magnitude-6.2 tremor and a 5.5 quake.

Coastal residents of northern Chile evacuated calmly as waves measuring almost 2 meters (6 ½ feet) struck ahead of a tsunami that was expected to come ashore later. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued an alert for all of Latin America's Pacific coast. Chile's Emergency Office said a large tsunami wave was expected to hit Robinson Crusoe island and others in the Juan Fernandez archipelago just before midnight local time.

Merdeka Center the dodger!

Posted: 01 Apr 2014 11:11 AM PDT

Mere lies, craps and a dodger.

That's what a review by Merdeka Center is all about. It claims 50 per cent of Malaysians were not happy with government's method in dealing with MH370 crisis.

It interviewed nobody. They just produced the story to belittle the multinational effort to locate the plane - all for a bad and stinking motive!

Read it carefully, especially on "...through phone interviews from March 7 to 20."

When did MH370 go missing? On the 8, right? Merdeka Center knew it was going to happen a day earlier! Were they the ones who employed the 'bomoh'?
As Malaysia continues to face mounting criticism over the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 – for instance, its lack of transparency and conflicting statements – a survey has shown that 50% of Malaysians are unhappy with Putrajaya's handling of the crisis.
The survey, carried out by the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research, revealed that only 43% were satisfied with the way Putrajaya was dealing with the issue.
The results were based on a survey done on 1,005respondents – 60% Malay, 31% Chinese and 9% Indians – through phone interviews from March 7 to 20.
However, approval towards Putrajaya's handling of the incident varies distinctly according to racial lines.
The majority of Chinese and Indian respondents were dissatisfied, at 74% and 59% respectively. Only 18% of Chinese and 36% of Indian polled said they were satisfied.
But 63% of Malay respondents expressed satisfition with the handling compared with 30% who said they were not.
Malaysia has come under heavy fire for miscommunication, and the failure of search and rescue efforts for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, particularly from China. The incident has now entered its fourth week. Out of the 239 people on MH370, 154 were Chinese.
Tell me, when did they start to compile feedback from netizens? Had there any, those who joined the survey are anti-Malaysia and pro-opposition idiots. Or could they be the families of the Chinese passengers who arrived in Kuala Lumpur a few days ago?

Merdeka Center is just another Suaram, Aliran and Tenaganita, opposing and condemning all the good things the government did for the country and the people. I think those who runs it have eight arms and 12 tongues!

Oh, another thing.

We heard no condolence nor a word of sympathy from the monkeys running Merdeka Center. Suaram and Aliran too!

Wonder if they are humans!
