Two very powerful earthquakes in the Indian Ocean have been detected by New Zealand’s quake drums reports WeatherWatch.co.nz.
The quakes measuring 8.6 and 8.2 were both detected by GeoNet’s seismograph drums on Thursday evening.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says there is no tsunami warning or watch for New Zealand and none would be expected due to the blocking feature of Australia and Indonesia.

I’m in jakarta and the first i knew of it was reading the herald website! However thinking back i do remember a jolt and wondering what it was. But there was no swaying sensation like we are used to in NZ so i dismissed it at the time.

The dogs were going crazy outside between 10:30 and 11pm tonight, could the earthquake have anything to do with it?
