- Disasters · Natural Disasters · Palu · Indonesia

First came the earthquake of 7.5 mag­ni­tude, then the tsunami with waves 3m high — and this was the de­struc­tion left in their wake in the town of Palu, on Su­lawesi is­land, Indonesia. Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est count, the death toll is 384, but it is ex­pected to rise. Thou­sands of homes have col­lapsed, along with hos­pi­tals, ho­tels and a shop­ping cen­tre.
