At least 408 dead in Indonesia after quake, tsunami


Strong aftershocks have continued to hit the
Indonesian island of Sulawesi, where a tsunami and a seven-point-five magnitude quake have
led to at least 408 deaths and injured five-hundred. Search operations continue for those thought
to be trapped under the debris of collapsed buildings in the city of Palu, the closest
to the epicenter. Tsunami waves are believed to have been as
high as six meters there… and they continued to hit the city even after the tsunami warning
was lifted. The airport in Palu is closed because of damage
to the runway caused by the quake. The South Korean embassy in Indonesia said
it’s trying to locate one South Korean national who was in the region. Finding the unnamed person is proving to be
difficult due to power outages and downed telecomunications.
