Earthquake devastates Southern Pacific
#1
Indonesia issued a tsunami warning within minutes of a sudden 10.1 magnitude earthquake. This comes on a frightening pattern similar to the 10+ scale earthquakes experienced in the 2020’s. Prior to the 20’s, scientists predicted these supra-scale quakes to occur at least every 10,000 years. It is quite disturbing that another has broken so soon after the previous devastating events.

The warnings were issued in Indonesia, the Phillippines, Timor, and Australia’s northernmost territory. Tsunami watches were automatically extended as far as Jakarta, Sumatra, and Singapore. The Pacific Rim nations are expected to experience devastating tsunami for several days. The death toll is estimated to be more than a million due to instant damage, and untold scores in addition over the coming weeks due to illness, starvation, and other secondary effects unless immediate intervention is taken.

Ascendancy Brandon was in Tokyo when the news broke. He has yet to make a public announcement beyond a generic decree of sorrow and best wishes for Custody’s Pacific neighbors. The most likely source of aid would be from the United States and Australia proper, but the USA is disrupted by the recent announcement of Texan succession. Chinese leaders have offered vague, noncommittal statements similar to the Custody.
