Turning ground into liquid, death toll on a surge in Palu

3 October, 2018

In the aftermath of the earthquake and the ensued tsunami in Indonesia, the death toll is reordered to be 1,350. The event has resulted in a mass burial everyday. There are still numerous bodies lying in the rubble of ruined buildings or the Tsunami waves, that reached to a 20-feet high at certain places. Affecting the lives of almost 1 million people inhabiting the areas, the dual disasters have forced the country's officials to seek the cause of failure in early warning detection.

 

The collective system of seismographic sensors, buoys, tidal gauges and GPS, that were completed in 2008, bore the blame for the failure in deliverance of early warnings and the high death toll. The country with 22 open water tsunami buoys, lacked maintenance and were vandalised, which furthered their dysfunction, at the time of the occurrence of the event.

 

The after effects also includes the liquefaction, causing the soil to lose its ability to support structures and destroying vast spreads of neighbourhoods entirely. The bridges have been down and roads destructed, leaving rescue efforts in vain. The main challenge before the nation is to get supplies to the areas that have been cut off, following the breakdown of roadways.

 

People have been stranded without access to drinking water, food supplies and electricity and have resorted to raiding shops for basic necessities. Police officers are forced to take up distribution measures for endurance. With highly unstable and constantly moving earth, the search operations have been futile and have anticipated for hike in the number of deaths.
