A strong Magnitude 6.0 earthquake has struck in the Arabian Sea just off the coast of Yemen.  The quake took place at 13:09 UTC which is 9:09 AM eastern US time at a shallow depth of only 10km, spawning fears of a large TSUNAMI for Yemen, Oman, Somalia and Ethiopia.

There are no Tsunami warning buoys in that area so the only warning folks may have is if the water suddenly recedes from the coastline.  Depending upon the direction of the quake, a Tsunami could also strike the heavily populated west coast of India hours from now.

No word yet on any damage, injuries or deaths.  If additional information becomes available, this story will be updated below.
