UPDATE: Tsunami Alert Issued for Parts of Country

The authorities on Friday warned people living in its eastern areas — including Papua, Maluku and North Sulawesi — to be on guard for tsunamis set off by a major quake off Japan.

“The arrival time of any waves that may be generated is expected at 8pm,” according to an official text message.

A massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit Japan on Friday, unleashing a monster 10-metre high tsunami that sent ships crashing into the shore and carried cars through the streets of coastal towns.
