INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI (2018)


Very sad situation Indonesia The people thought it was over when the earthquake came, but then there was the tsunami Stay tuned This is the moment a tsunami hit the Indonesian city of Palu Triggered by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck the island of Sulawesi on Friday September 28th, The 3 meter high waves swept through the tourist resort destroying dozens of buildings including shopping centers, malls, a mosque, hotels and hospitals Bridges were washed away and the main highway was cut by landslides scores of people were injured And many fatalities were confirmed But hundreds more are missing. The city had been preparing for a beach festival when the quake struck Many of the fatalities were found on the shoreline Others were trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings The nearby cities of Donggala and Mamuju you were also ravaged, but little information was available Due to damaged roads and disrupted Telecommunications Indonesia’s hit frequently by earthquakes and relief and rescue responders were quick to react The relief operation currently is being hampered By continued aftershocks and a major power outage that has cut Communications As of September 30th, over 800 fatalities have been reported As hospitals struggled to cope with the hundreds of injured and rescues scrambled to reach the stricken region Let us pray for the people of Indonesia Earthquake information, Earthquakes kill about 8,000 people every year The earth is covered in tectonic plates that slowly move around its surface And the edges of the faults are rough, sometimes getting stuck together This results in a build-up of energy as the plates continue to try to move Releasing energy in seismic wave that shakes the earth as it moved through it, a short wiggly line means a small earthquake And a long wiggly line with lots of peaks and troughs means a large earthquake Scientists have tried many different ways of predicting earthquakes But it is unlikely it will ever be possible Question for the day: Should you stay in a building during an earthquake for protection or get out of it?
