Hundreds dead in Palu quake and tsunami More than 380 people have been confirmed dead after a tsunami triggered by amagnitude 7.5 earthquake hit an Indonesian city on Friday. Waves up to 3m (10 ft.)high swept through Palu on Sulawesi Island. Video on social media shows peoplescreaming and feeling in panic and mosque amongst the buildings damaged. Strongaftershocks continued to rock the city on Saturday. Thousands of homes have collapsed,along with hospitals, hotels and shopping centers. Rescue efforts are under way,though hampered by a major power cut. The main road to Palu has been blocked due to alandslide.‘Many bodies along the shoreline’ Indonesia’s disaster agency said at least 384 people have been killed. Morethan 350 have been injured. A less powerful quake earlier on Friday had killed atleast one person and injured at least 10 in the smaller fishing town of Donggala. “Wehave not received comprehensive reports yet because communication are cut. Many bodieswere found along the shoreline because of the tsunami, but the numbers are stillunknown,” Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the agency, told Reuters. It is not clear whether the deaths came in the quake or the resulting tsunami.TV footage showed dozens of injured people being treated outside in makeshift medicaltents. Palu and Donggala are home to more than 600,000 people. A minister said therunway in Palu was damaged, although it was hoped that helicopters would still be ableto land. The country’s military has started sending cargo planes of relief aid fromthe capital, Jakarta. The earthquake hit just off central Sulawesi at a depth of 10 km. (6.2 miles)just before 18:00 (11:00 GMT), the US Geological Survey said. A tsunami warning wasissued, but lifted within the hour. Indonesia’s meteorological agency has beencriticized for its response, but officials said the waves stuck while the warning wasin place. Dramatic video of the tsunami hitting Palu shows the high waves sweeping awayseveral buildings and then the large tilted mosque in the town, about 80 km. from thequake’s epicenter. “The situation is chaotic, people are running on the streets andbuildings collapsed. There is a ship washed ashore,” said Dwikorita Karnawati, headof Indonesia’s meteorology and geophysics agency. A 2004 tsunami triggered by an earthquake off the Indonesian island of Sumatrakilled 226,000 across the Indonesia Ocean, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia.Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because it lies on the Ring of Fire – the line offrequent quakes and volcano eruptions that circles virtually the entire Pacific rim.More than half of the world’s active volcanoes above sea level are part of the ring. Just last month, a series of deadly earthquakes struck the Indonesian island ofLombok. The biggest, on 5 August killed more than 460 people.Source:
