Google Earth Plug-in: 7.7 earthquake and Tsunami

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

JAKARTA, Indonesia - A 6-foot-high tsunami crashed into beach resorts and fishing villages along Indonesia’s Java island Monday, killing at least 339 people, leaving many missing and sending thousands fleeing to higher ground in terror, witnesses and officials said.

Regional agencies issued bulletins that a 7.7-magnitude undersea earthquake was strong enough to send a killer wave steaming toward the country worst hit by the 2004 tsunami, but they did not reach the victims because the island has no warning system.

The hardest-hit area appeared to be Pangandaran, an idyllic beach resort long popular with local and foreign tourists, where witnesses said people shouted “tsunami, tsunami” and climbed trees or crowded inland mosques as the wave approached.
