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.

 

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.

 

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 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.
