Indonesia says could be hit by small tsunami from Chile quake

Indonesia warned Wednesday that it could be hit by a small tsunami generated by an 8.2-magnitude earthquake that struck off Chile’s Pacific coast and warned people to stay away from beaches.

A tsunami up to half a metre (1.6 feet) high “will possibly affect several areas in Indonesia” from early Thursday, said disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.
