The earthquake triggered a series of tsunami waves that reached up to three metres, sweeping away all in their path along beaches in Donggala and Palu. Nearly 1,000 villages have been affected and so far more than 1,200 deaths have been reported, with this number expected to climb in the coming days.

Rescue teams are struggling to reach all affected areas due to widespread destruction of roads and bridges. Power and communication lines have also been knocked out.

World Vision’s Radika Pinto, reporting from affected area, says the earthquake and tsunami have caused a catastrophic situation. "I’m afraid the death toll is going to continue to rise dramatically. The smell of death is still strong in the air.”
