  • Magnitude 7.7 quake prompts Gorontalo residents to stay outdoors

A mosque at Palu slammed by waves on Friday (Sep 28). This event reportedly damaged homes and resulted in 10 injuries and one fatality.

Twelve minutes later, a strong aftershock of 6.1-magnitude followed.

People living hundreds of kilometers from the epicenter reported feeling the massive shake, which came hours after a smaller jolt killed at least one person in the same part of the country. But the death toll is still unclear.

Other official agencies did not issue tsunami alerts following the temblor.

Local media reports that the airport at Palu has been closed until Saturday evening.

According to the Weather Channel, "It's believed the tsunami, confirmed by local agencies to be up to 10 feet tall".

Onlookers captured the moment the tsunami hit on camera, and the brutal footage shows the incredible force of the wave as it crashes and tears through buildings, submerging entire structures and sending people screaming and running.

People are running on the streets and buildings have collapsed.

Mirza Arisam, a resident of Kendari, the capital of neighbouring Southeast Sulawesi, said his uncle and his family of five, including three children, were on vacation in Palu and he has been unable to contact them since the tsunami hit.

"This means that the 1.5-meter tsunami indeed took place but the incident ended at 5.36pm WIB, and thus, the BMKG ended the tsunami early warning", Karnawati said. "There is a ship washed ashore", she added.

The US Geological Survey said the shallow quake was centered at a depth of 10km.

Friday's tremor was also felt in the far south of the island in its largest city Makassar and on neighbouring Kalimantan, Indonesia's portion of Borneo island.

"When the (tsunami) threat arose yesterday, people were still doing their activities on the beach and did not immediately run and they became victims", Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman of Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency BNPB said in news briefing in Jakarta.

"It happened while we still have difficulties in collecting data from nine villages affected by the first quake", he said.
