 Death Toll Could Top 1,000 in Indonesia Quake

[b]...and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven...[/b]

GUNUNGSITOLI, Indonesia (Reuters) - More than 1,000 people were feared killed in a massive earthquake which hit a remote Indonesian island famed as a surfing paradise, reducing large parts of its main town to rubble.

The Indian Ocean epicenter of Monday night's 8.7 magnitude quake was just about 100 miles southeast of the upheaval three months ago which triggered a tsunami that left nearly 300,000 people dead or missing across Asia.

Despite widespread panic across Asia on Monday night and tsunami warnings in several nations, there was no killer wave.

Indonesia's disaster center said around 1,000 people were killed in the latest tremor, which was about two to four times less powerful than the 9.0 magnitude quake on Dec. 26 but was still one of the eight biggest in the world since 1900.

Indonesia's vice president said the toll could reach 2,000
