Luckily no tsunami. Looking at the data, the quake looked like it was strike-slip as opposed to a thrust, which is probably why there was no tsunami.

Fingers crossed there are no injuries or damage from the earthquake itself!

The city of Padang was pretty jolted... had a friend overnighting there for 5am departure, his rest was disturbed by being thrown around in the room during the quake. He and his crew rushed downstairs... and a few minutes later, they were told to go to the top floor of the hotel due to tsunami warning... which didn't get cancelled until 11pm... (his schedule was changed to 1 leg only and then change crew)...
