Indonesia Natural Disasters
Indonesia has been facing numerous natural disasters for weeks, and there are no signs of it to end. People are left homeless and in fear of when the next disaster would strike.
On September 28th, 2018 a three-meter-high tsunami took over Palu and Donggala, two cities on an island in the east of Indonesia. The cause of the tsunami was a 7.4-magnitude earthquake out at sea 30 minutes before the tsunami struck the two cities. The wave caused a chaos in the two cities. the infrastructures were destroyed, and cars swept away. A hotel consisting of 60 guests was smashed. Many people are left without shelter and electricity.
After the last Earthquake and Tsunami, multiple aftershocks are faced by the citizens. Indonesia is facing a gradual and painstaking recovery from the deadly earthquake and tsunami, but scientists claim that there may be something deadly coming. The increase of climate change is causing natural disasters to be more common and deadly.
Mount Soputan, located at the island of Sulawesi, erupted just before 8 a.m. on October 3, 2018, signaling a red signal for the country to beware. The airports are still operating, but there is no evacuation taking place as yet.
Efforts are still in process to save the victims of trapped under rubbles. However, not many days are left to save them. The death toll continues to increase.
