Daily Photo – Tsunami Warning Tower

Bengkulu was also affected by the earthquake off the coast of Aceh in 2004, but obviously it was minimal compared to the city of Aceh. Bengkulu has small earthquakes once or twice a week and this in the past called for the building of a “view tower” or tsunami warning system among other uses. From reports it has yet to be completed and has no warning siren installed so in the event of an earthquake and tsunami it is best for the locals to use better judgement and head for the high points.
I am lucky to be living in the location I do as I have a partial view of the ocean and also on a high enough point not to worry to much if a tsunami does strike the beaches of Bengkulu.
