Deadly Tsunami Hits Indonesia
There was no earthquake
that could have triggered the tsunami
that struck parts of Indonesia on Saturday night
leaving hundreds of people dead,
hundreds injured, dozens missing
and houses destroyed by the hundreds.
Indonesian authorities now say
that it was caused by an eruption
on Anak Krakatau,
a volcano situated in the Sunda Strait
between the islands of Java and Sumatra
in the Indonesian province of Lampung.
The eruption first caused an underwater landslide
which then caused the displacement of seawater
we call tsunami.
People were totally unaware
as tsunami was heading inland,
like the video below.
Popular band in Indonesia named "Seventeen"
was performing on stage beside the beach
and was swept away.
Rescue operations are still ongoing,
hoping to find survivors after the deadly tsunami.
