A tsunami may surge up to Bangladesh coast after Wednesday midnight following an earthquake near southern Sumatra of Indonesia, a Met warning said.

“It may generate tsunami wave in the Bay of Bengal of the North Indian Ocean that may reach Bangladesh coast after midnight (tonight),” said a Met Office bulletin in the evening.

A massive earthquake measuring 8.5 on Richter scale hit near southern Sumatra of Indonesia in the afternoon. The earthquake may trigger undersea waves called tsunami in Japanese terms.

If so, it is going to be a re-visitation by the fearful calamity, as several lakh people were killed in many countries, including Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India, in an Indian Ocean tsunami on December 26 in 2004 following a massive earthquake in the same area.
