Unhappy Tsunami Strikes Without Warning: Hundreds Dead As Social Media Captures Disaster

This is so sad. An unexpected tsunami crashed over a concert in Indonesia, killing several hundred people, including some members of the band.

Quote:
At least 222 people have been killed after a deadly tsunami struck the country of Indonesia last night. Along the Sunda Strait, the wave smashed homes, hotels, and beachside buildings.

One social media post showed the moment the wave struck an Indonesian pop band. The group has reported the death of their bass player and road manager, and other members of the group are still missing.

In a news release, the band named Seventeen confirmed the deaths of bassist M. Awal Purbani, also known as Bani, and road manager Oki Wijaya, the Jakarta Post reported.

Four others, guitarist Herman Sikumbang, drummer Andi Windu Darmawan, crew member Ujang, and Dylan Sahara, wife of vocalist Riefian Fajarsyah, haven’t been found yet.

“Seventeen was performing at an event held by state electric company PLN near the shore of Tanjung Lesung beach when the tidal wave hit their stage around 9:30 p.m.”

Social media footage of the disaster shows the stage lurching forward into the audience along with the band and its equipment.

More than 800 other people were injured, and the death toll continues to rise.

The Associated Press reported, “It was the second deadly tsunami to hit Indonesia this year, but the one that killed more than 2,500 people on the island of Sulawesi on Sept. 28 was accompanied by a powerful earthquake that gave residents a brief warning before the waves struck.”

Oddly, there was absolutely no warning.

The ground didn’t shake beforehand to alert people to the oncoming wave.https://conservativedailypost.com/ts...%20-%20Engaged

I'm guessing a shelf broke hundreds of miles out to sea and the speed wasn't visible until close to sure...

We don't have tsunami's or tornadoes or hurricanes.
Not even major earthquakes. Desert seems fairly safe.
