Death Toll Rises To 1,234 In Indonesia Quake, Tsunami
(Palu, Indonesia) — The death toll from the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia is now past a thousand. The government is confirming at least one-thousand-234 people died in the natural disasters that struck the island of Sulawesi [[ soo-la-WAY-see ]] on Friday. People in the tourist city of Palu [[ pah-LOO ]] are becoming more desperate. There’s little running water, food, fuel, or drinking water and damaged roads make it hard to bring in more. A damaged airport and broken telecommunications infrastructure add to the chaos. Hospitals are damaged so injured people are being treated in the open. At least one military field hospital has been set up.
