Annual torrential rainfall has triggered devastating landslides and overwhelmed a central Indonesia dam, forcing officials to open floodgates that released a deluge of water on the famous Makassar neighborhood.

 

“Torrential rain caused a dam to be overwhelmed by water, forcing us to open it to prevent a greater danger. This is what caused flooding in some areas,” said Adnan Purichta Ichsann, the chief of Gowa district near Makassar, the provincial capital of South Sulawesi. The death toll has risen to 30, and more than 2,000 people in Central Indonesia have been displaced as of Wednesday, 23 January 2019.
The dead included two infants who drowned and a man who was electrocuted after the floods began late Tuesday. The flooding and landslides affected nine districts and forced more than 3,000 people from their homes, the AP reports. Aside from Gowa and Makassar City, the floods hit Takalar, Jeneponto, Maros, Pangkep and Barru regencies. Rescuers were evacuating residents to shelters at a government office and mosques, Ichsann said. The national disaster agency said four people are missing and more than 2,000 were in temporary shelters.
More than 3,000 people have been evacuated and at least 46 are being treated at local hospitals and health clinics. A landslide in Sukabumi on the main island of Java earlier this month killed 32 people. Ichsann said the death toll could rise as areas hit by landslides are still being searched. Several bridges have been damaged by the flooding and power cut off in affected areas.
Now is the chance to come forward and help our brothers and sisters in Indonesia. They need all the help they can get to stabilize themselves and resume a normal life after a series of earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis have shaken their homes and livelihood. Even the smallest of donations count. Don’t let the numbers stop you for Allah loves all those who give and help remove a difficulty of a fellow Muslim.

Indonesia has been struck by another tsunami which has killed more than 400 people. More than 1,400 people were injured, and about 12,000 residents have been displaced.

 

Another major Tsunami hit Pandeglang, Serang and South Lampung in Indonesia around 10 PM on Saturday. It rolled up along the rim of the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra islands which separates two of Indonesia’s biggest islands. The tsunami struck without warning and was the result of an underwater landslide as per experts.
The Tsunami has killed at least 400 people. More than 1,400 people were injured, and about 12,000 residents had to move to higher ground, with a high-tide warning extended to Wednesday. These numbers are expected to go up with rescue works still in progress.
The tsunami came without warning and left towns and villages devastated. A three-metre-high wave crushed vehicles and razed buildings. The waters ripped houses from foundations, and left cars and boats smashed against palm trees. Thatched bamboo shacks were torn apart. Before daybreak, disaster crews were gathering the dead and creating outdoor morgues piled with orange body bags, a sight that unfortunately has been repeated many times this year in Indonesia. It has destroyed more than 700 buildings, from small shops and houses to villas and hotels. It took just 24 minutes after the landslide for waves to hit land, and there was no early warning for those living on the coast.
It is holiday season in Indonesia and Pandeglang is a popular spot for tourists. Its white-sand beaches are promoted as part of Indonesia’s tourism campaigns. Most of the fatalities reported so far have occurred there.
The Child of Krakatoa Volcano
According to the national geological agency, this disaster may have been caused by an eruption of Anak Krakatau aka the “Child of Krakatoa”, a small volcanic atoll located in the Sunda Strait., where a much larger volcano known in the west as Krakatoa once stood.  In 1883, the volcano then known as Krakatoa erupted in one of the biggest blasts in recorded history, killing more than 36,000 people in a series of tsunami, and lowering the global surface temperature by one degree Celsius with its ash. The meteorology agency states that an area of about 64 hectares, or 90 football pitches, of this volcanic island had collapsed into the sea. The timing of this disaster brought back memories of the infamous Indian Ocean tsunami triggered by an earthquake on 26 December 2004, which killed 226,000 people in 14 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia alone.
More deadly tsunamis could strike the Indonesian coastline in the coming days, authorities warn, as the volcano which triggered the weekend’s devastating wave continues to erupt.
Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman at Indonesia’s National Disaster Mitigation Agency, warned Sunday that more tsunamis were possible as long as the volcano remained active. Adding weight to his warnings, Sutopo raised the issue of Indonesia’s outdated tsunami buoy network which he said hasn’t worked properly since 2012.

Indonesia has been struck by a tsunami after a 7.5-magnitude quake, with the death toll at 1763 and expected to rise rapidly in thousands as homes are swept away.

 

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

 

As per data from the US Geological Survey (USGS), the first earthquake of magnitude 6.1 hit 55 KM North West of Palu, Central Sulawesi striking at a depth of 18.1km. This was followed by a 5.4 magnitude quake, which struck 77 KM North East of Palu, just minutes later. This was followed by a 4.9 magnitude tremor which hit 57 KM North of Palu. The tremors from these quakes could be felt as far as Bali.

 

– Tsunami waves as tall as 6 and a half meters (20 feet) in height, struck Donggala and Palu, a coastal town of about 330,000.

– The city of Palu has been devastated. There is no electricity and drinking water is in short supply after the pipes were damaged. Fuel supplies are also running low.

– Rescue operations are hindered by the lack of heavy equipment needed to shift the rubble. Most search and rescue of victims is being done by hand. Bodies are now being buried in mass graves once they have been identified.

– At least 540 people had been badly injured, the agency said, as hospitals struggled to cope with the influx of casualties, setting up open-air clinics to treat the injured.

– The national disaster agency says 1700 homes in one neighbourhood alone were swallowed up and hundreds of people killed. A total of 65,733 homes were destroyed

– Rescuers have recovered 1,558 bodies of victims who were mostly buried alive.

A powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi at around 5PM local time on Friday just hours after a powerful, deadly aftershock. This as per reports triggered a tsunami that hit the coast minutes later.

The earthquake was initially measured at a magnitude of 7.5 by the United States Geological Survey (USGS). About 10 minutes later, another quake struck the area, this one registering as a magnitude of 5.8.There were at least 10 foreshocks and aftershocks recorded at magnitude 5 or stronger on Friday.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]A tsunami of up to 6 meters hit a small city on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi after the major quake struck offshore on Friday, collapsing buildings and washing a vessel ashore. About 390,000 people remain displaced after the quakes, according to Indonesia’s disaster agency. Reconstruction efforts are now underway on the island, with the disasters having caused 1.4 Billion MYR ($340 million) in damage.

There is a sever blackout across most of the areas. Hospitals are overflowing and fuel is very limited. Due to the roads being damaged it is making the search and rescue efforts even more challenging and difficult. Food, water, medicine, tents, medicine and baby supplies are also in short supply.

 

Now is the chance to come forward and help our brothers and sisters in Indonesia. They need all the help they can get to stabilize themselves and resume a normal life after a series of earthquakes have shaken their homes and livelihood. Even the smallest of donations count.
