Panaji: The Goa government today asked people in the state to stay away from the waters following the massive earthquake in Indonesia.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told reporters that he had ordered district administration officials to go around in the coastal belt and ask people to exercise caution and remain inland.

"The officials will go in the coastal area and announce on the public sound system to remain away from the water," he said, adding the tourism department has also been asked to make aware people on the beach.

The chief minister said there was no Tsunami warning for the state but enough precautions have been taken.

A massive earthquake of 8.5 magnitude hit waters off Indonesia triggering tsunami fears across the Indian Ocean nations, including India.
