Fresh aftershocks hit Andamans
Aftershocks continued to rock Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Tuesday, over a week after a giant earthquake off Indonesia's coast set off tsunami waves which killed over one lakh people across South and South-East Asia.
Two quakes, measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale, jolted the region at 1.06 am and 7.35 am, the Meteorological Department said.
These were epicentred off the west coast of Great Nicobar Island, which witnessed widespread death and devastation when the giant waves struck on December 26.
The region has witnessed about 100 aftershocks, with intensity up to seven on the Richter scale, since the "black Sunday".
It was not known whether the fresh quakes caused any damage.
