Death Toll Rises Above 380 Indonesia


According to reports 384 people killed due to the 10foot tsunami triggered by 7.5 Magnitude of Earthquake in the city of Palu in Indonesia. 

Rescue officials, meanwhile, tried to reach the nearby city of Donggala, home to 300,000 people, and the surrounding areas after a large bridge collapsed. Authorities fear that the death toll, which was at 48 several hours earlier, could continue to rise significantly.

Authorities have said that “tens to hundreds” of people were by the ocean in Palu for a beach festival when the tsunami struck, and their fate is unknown.  Rescue officials on Saturday had added complications of poor communications, widespread outages, destroyed bridges and blocked roads. They anticipate huge bottlenecks for relief supplies that will arrive in the coming days as aid workers rush to the area on limited flights.
