Over 1400 people dead and over 2.4million people are affected by the Indonesia Tsunami

On Friday 28th September 2018 a tsunami, triggered by a 7.5 earthquake, hit Sulawesi in Indonesia.

According to recent reports, more than 1,400 people have been confirmed dead, and these numbers are sadly expected to continue to increase as new information becomes available. It is estimated that over 2.4 million people have been affected by the disaster according to the Indonesian Disaster Management Agency.

Families have lost everything. Thousands of homes have collapsed and power and communication lines are down. In the aftermath of the disaster, rescue efforts have begun though access is a major challenge.

For families whose loved ones are missing, the real magnitude of the disaster is yet to be known.
