And these waves were smaller compare to the Boxing Day tsunami which reached around 30 metres (100 ft) at a depth of 30km.

Re: Indonesian City Hit By Tsunami After Strong Quake

There’s still more area that they can’t get to right now, so the death toll will rise.

844 dead and they fear thousands more, I heard somewhere that there’s about 1200 dead but I can’t confirm it.

Confirmed to be 1234 people killed so far.

Earthquake and Tsunami Hits Palu, More Than 1,500 Casualties Reported

Indonesian quake-tsunami death toll tops 1,500; searchers make last-ditch efforts in Palu
AFP-JIJI

OCT 5, 2018

PALU, INDONESIA– Search teams made desperate last-ditch efforts Friday to find survivors, a week on from Indonesia’s devastating quake-tsunami, as the death toll from the disaster rose above 1,500.

The city of Palu on Sulawesi island has been left in ruins after being hit by a 7.5 magnitude quake and a wall of water, which flattened homes, ripped up trees and overturned cars.

After days of delays, international aid has finally started to arrive in the disaster zone, where the U.N. says almost 200,000 people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Survivors have ransacked shops and supply trucks in the hunt for basic necessities, prompting security forces to round up dozens of suspected looters and warn that they will fire on thieves.

Authorities previously set a tentative deadline of Friday for finding anyone trapped under ruined buildings, although chances of pulling survivors alive from the rubble at such a late stage are almost zero.

Local military spokesman Muhammad Thohir said that the death toll had risen to 1,558, up about 100 from the previous official figure.

Over 100 people are still unaccounted for, while hundreds of bodies have been buried in mass graves in a bid to avert a disease outbreak from corpses rotting in the tropical sun.

Search efforts focused on eight key locations Friday, including a beach and the Balaroa area where the sheer force of the quake turned the earth temporarily to mush.

“We have to use heavy equipment now because it is very difficult to sift through the rubble by hand,” Yusuf Latif, a spokesman for Indonesia’s search and rescue agency, told AFP.

At the badly damaged Mercure hotel on Palu’s waterfront, there was growing frustration among a French and Indonesian search team.

The rescuers, using sniffer dogs and scanners, had detected what they believed was a person under mounds of rubble the previous evening but when they resumed the hunt early Friday, any signs of life had disappeared.

“Yesterday we had a heartbeat and sign of breathing, there were no other movements so it means it was someone who was motionless, confined,” said Philippe Besson, president of the International Emergency Firefighters.

“Today we have no signal.”

A week on from the disaster, some roads in the area remain impassable, detritus from the tsunami is scattered everywhere and terrified people are sleeping outside for fear of further quakes.

Improvised white flags — a pillow case or duvet cover — fly outside many homes, signifying a death in the family.

Nevertheless there were signs of life returning to normal, with children playing in the streets, radios blaring out music, and electricity back up and running in most places.

“Things are improving,” Azhari Samad, a 56-year-old insurance salesman, told AFP at a mosque in Palu.

But for the area to recover fully from the disaster “will take years,” he added.

“The first six months will be traumatic, maybe in one year we have some progress. The government will help, people will help from all over the country. Indonesians have a big heart.”

Samad spoke to AFP ahead of Friday prayers in the world’s biggest Muslim majority country.

Sulawesi is also home to a large Christian minority.

About 20 planes carrying vital supplies such as tarpaulins, medical equipment and generators are now heading from all over the world to the disaster zone after a long delay.

Indonesia was initially reluctant to accept outside help, insisting its own military could handle the response, but as the scale of the devastation became clear President Joko Widodo agreed to allow in foreign aid.

Governments from Australia to Britain are flying in supplies, the United Nations has pledged $15 million to the relief effort, and aid groups including Save the Children and the Red Cross are also on the ground.

Indonesia sits along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” the world’s most tectonically active region, and its 260 million people are vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

Indonesia earthquake and tsunami leave more than 70,000 homeless in hard-hit Palu
Last Updated Oct 4, 2018 9:53 AM EDT

PALU, Indonesia -- Indonesian marines are pouring into the area devastated by an earthquake and tsunami to help with rescues. The death toll climbed overnight to more than 1,420 and Indonesia has still not evacuated all of the injured. But six days after the disasters struck, there were still glimmers of hope on Thursday.

A French rescue team said it had detected possible signs of life under rubble in the hard-hit city of Palu, but there was no immediate confirmation of a survivor. Hundreds of victims' bodies are still believed to be buried under debris in Palu and surrounding towns, and hope has dwindled in recent days of finding anyone else alive. French rescue team member Philip Besson told the Associated Press that a suspected survivor was detected under heavy concrete slabs using scanning equipment. He said his team lacked the heavy machinery to try and free the person before nightfall on Thursday, but that a new effort would be launched on Friday morning.

More than 70,000 people in Palu are now homeless, reports CBS News' Ben Tracy. There is no running water or electricity and nowhere to buy food, but the Indonesian military finally arrived Thursday with supplies including boxes of water, instant noodles and giant sacks of clothes. All of it is desperately needed at the many makeshift camps that have sprung up all over the disaster zone for the homeless.

A woman named Endang told CBS News she's been living in one of the camps with her 1-year-old girl Wuhan since the disasters struck. A tent is their only protection from the 90-degree heat, and they've been forced to drink water from the nearby river, which is also being used as a toilet. Trash is overflowing everywhere and burning in the streets. She has no idea how long she'll be there.

Her home was wiped out by the tsunami triggered by the 7.5 magnitude earthquake last Friday. The scars on her daughter's face are from being rolled by the tsunami waves. She says it's a miracle they found her alive.

Another man at the camp was walking around wearing a sign that says he's looking for his wife and son. He hasn't seen them since the earthquake. He's holding out hope that they may still be alive, though every home in his neighborhood was reduced to piles of debris.

In that area, more than 700 homes were destroyed by the earthquake. There is so much debris and so little to move it with that it's hard to imagine how long it will take to find all the people who are likely buried there.

Sadly, crews are expecting to find many more victims. There is a mass burial every day, and the city just dug a second mass grave because the first one is already full.
