MFA monitoring Indonesian earthquake

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in statement on Wednesday night that it is closely monitoring the situation following the earthquake off the coast of Aceh and the Indian Ocean-wide tsunami alert.

It advised Singaporeans in affected areas to pay close attention to and heed any intructions from local authorities.

The MFA also urged Singaporeans in these areas to register at http://eregister.mfa.gov.sg/ if they have not done so, so that the ministry can contact them in the event of an emergency.

Those who require consular assistance should contact the 24-hour hotline at 6379 8800 0r 6379 8855.
