Indonesia quake coverage

At 1152 gmt, Rosemary Church live in Atlanta broke into the re-run of World Sport to bring the first breaking news of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake just off Sulawesi, Indonesia. No tsunami warning had yet been issued at this time. These were literally the only details available at the time, and Rose handed back to World Sport in progress.

Neither BBC News 24 or Sky News were reporting this news at the time, making CNNI the first.
