Indonesians are in need of urgent aid

429 people lost their lives as a result of the tsunami that occurred following the volcanic eruption in Indonesia. IHH launched an emergency aid operation to the region, initially delivering humanitarian aid materials to 7 thousand 500 people.

The eruption of the Anak Krakatau Volcano in the Sunda Strait triggered an undersea landslide. This caused a tsunami in the Sunda Strait that runs between the provinces of Lampung and Banten close to the capital Jakarta. While the volcanic eruption began at 18:00, the tsunami struck at 21:30. The cities of Pandeglang, Lampung, Selatan and Serang were affected by the tsunami.

While the death toll from the tsunami has reached 429, 1 thousand 459 people were injured in the disaster. 128 people are still unaccounted for, and 600 homes were declared damaged in the tsunami. On the other hand, authorities raised the danger alert of another tsunami due to the eruption of the Anak Krakatau.
