About 1,000 people dead or missing following major tsunami that hit Palu beach, Indonesia following M7.5 earthquake

About 400 people were killed, and many more swept away by giant waves after a powerful earthquake and tsunami hit the beach of the city of Palu on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday.

“The tsunami didn’t come by itself, it dragged cars, logs, houses, it hit everything on land,” spokesman of Indonesia’s disaster mitigation agency BNPB told reporters.

The tsunami struck with a speed of 800 km/h, destroying or causing “extensive” damage to thousands of buildings and public infrastructure along the shoreline and beyond, BNPB reported.
