Magnitude 7.5 Earthquake and Tsunami Strikes Indonesia

#1 Postby FireRat » Fri Sep 28, 2018 10:28 am

A large Tsunami struck Indonesia today following a damaging M 7.5 Earthquake, leaving people missing and heavy destruction. This doesn't look good at all, there may be large aftershocks or even other large quakes in the region over the next few days. Indonesia tends to get large quakes following other large quakes, so things could remain dangerous over there as September ends.

yeah the videos are similar to the 2004 event in severity, but in a much smaller area. Despite that, the death toll keeps rising and at an alarming rate, I'm afraid it might near 1000.

The videos of Soil Liquefaction I saw in Twitter and Facebook are just horrible.

I have never seen anything like that before - it's like it came straight out from some disaster movie.

Maybe related to the earthquake. Soputan volcano on the northern part of Sulawesi island, some 600km NE of Palu, has erupted.
