Sources from Indonesia stated that a tsunami believed to be triggered by a volcanic eruption killed at least 222 people in Indonesia during a busy holiday weekend, sweeping away hotels, hundreds of houses and a group of people attending a beach concert. Accordingly more than 800 were reported injured and 28 missing after the tsunami hit around the Sunda Strait and the toll could continue to rise because some areas had not yet been reached.



Furthermore scientists, including those from Indonesia’s Meteorology and Geophysics agency, said Sunday that the tsunami could have been caused by undersea landslides or those occurring above sea level on the Anak Krakatau volcano’s steep outside slope following the eruption. Reportedly the volcano’s name translates to “Child of Krakatoa,” a volcanic island formed over years after one of the largest eruptions in recorded history occurred at the Krakatoa volcano more than a century ago.

Moreover Saturday’s tsunami rekindled memories for some of the massive magnitude 9.1 earthquake that hit on Dec. 26, 2004. Further it spawned a giant tsunami off Sumatra Island in western Indonesia, killing more than 230,000 people in a dozen countries the majority in Indonesia. Reportedly roads and infrastructure are poor in many areas of disaster-prone Indonesia, making access difficult in the best of conditions.
