So far 77 people have been killed and over 700 injured after a tsunami hit the coast on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.
Deaths have been reported in the Pandeglang, South Lampung and Serang regions.
Among the areas hit was the popular Tanjung Lesung beach resort in west Java. There was no warning of the advancing wave.
Officials are investigating whether the tsunami was caused by Anak Krakatoa, a volcanic island in the Sunda Strait.
The eruption from the volcano can cause landslides under water which can trigger a Tsunami.
Indonesia is prone to Tsunamis because it lies on the ‘Ring of Fire. Many Tsunamis are triggered by earthquakes in this region and as recent as September over 2000 people were killed and over 100,000 displaced by a Tsunami and Earthquake that hit the Palu district.
