Jakarta sources stated a tsunami apparently caused by the eruption of an island volcano killed at least 43 people after the waves hit the coast around Indonesia's Sunda Strait, sending a wall of water some 20 metres inland and damaging hundreds of houses including hotels. Meanwhile scientists from Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics agency said it could have been caused by undersea landslides from the eruption of Anak Krakatau, a volcanic island formed over years from the nearby Krakatau volcano. They also cited tidal waves caused by the full moon.



Oystein Lund Andersen wrote on Facebook "He had to run, as the wave passed the beach and landed 15-20m (metres) inland". Meanwhile he said he was taking pictures of the volcano when he suddenly saw a big wave come toward him.
