The terrifying moment families run for their lives in Indonesia as tsunami and quakes turn the ground to LIQUID – as the death toll soars to 1,203

  • Houses and buildings have moved, sunken or collapsed due to ‘liquefaction’
  • Palu City in Indonesia has turned to mush, raising the death toll to 1,203
  • A 7.5 magnitude earthquake caused a tsunami to crash into Sulawesi island 
  • Palu and Donggala were worse hit as beachgoers were swept away by waves 

The surface of tsunami-destroyed Palu City in Indonesia has turned to mush, with the death toll from Friday’s natural disaster likely to climb even higher from 1,203.

Houses and buildings have moved, sunken or collapsed as a result of the ‘liquefaction’ of the ground and there are more people still suspected to be trapped.

This natural phenomenon occurs during an earthquake when tremors shake normally compact layers of sand and soil into a deadly ‘soup’ that can create an effect similar to a sink hole.

The tsunami, triggered by a magnitude-7.5 earthquake, ripped through the Pacific Ring of Fire and crashed into the city at 500mph on Friday evening.
