Earthquake hits Indonesia; Death toll may reach 2,000


Banda Aceh, Indonesia(AP) A powerful 8.7-magnitide earthquake hammered Indonesia' s west coast, collapsing homes and burying sleeping residents inside and sparking panic across Indian Ocian countries still traumatized by the Tusnami disaster three months ago. Death toll estimate varied widely, from 200 to ten times that number.


While fears of another Tsunami catastrope faded Tuesday when waves appeared in the hours immediately after the overnight quake, the force of the temblor brouht down 70 percent of the buldings on a market district in a town on nearby Nias island officials said.


"It is predicted - and it' s still a rough estimate - that the number of the victims of dead may be between 1,000 and 2,000,"  Vice President Jusuf Kalla told the el-Shinta radio station in Jakarta on Tuesdey morning.


He said the estimate was based on the number of builings damaged when the quake hit about an hour before midnight Monday, not on bodies counted. 


President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono postponed a planned visit Wednesday to Australia and said he would fly to Nias to assess damage. The timing of his visit to Nias were not immediately confirmed, nor was a new date for Yudhoyono' s Australian trip.
