Disaster in Sulawesi continued

The Science of Indonesia's Surprise Tsunami

The poor people of Palu had gone to the beach for a ceremony commemorating the city's birthday. Our friend Sarah was here yesterday. She wrote Diving in Indonesia and was at a diving resort on Suluwesi and there was a volcano going off near her triggered by the earthquake and the news made a big deal of that but it's a volcano that goes off once or more every year so it was no factor for the people there - unlike here in Bali 1100 miles away, no one lives under it. And she was far from the earthquake epicenter and tsunami too. This link is on how the tsunami was not expected, unique condition.
