September 30: Indonesian Quake Damages Java Homes

Posted by Lindy on November 6, 2009


Sumatra

More than a thousand Sumatrans were dead in the wake of two strong earthquakes in as many days. Officials believe the death toll will rise further.

The initial quake registered a magnitude of 7.6 late Wednesday afternoon as it wrecked homes and other buildings, including hospitals, in the city of Padang.

The shaking also sparked fires and broke water mains, causing streets to flood across the city.

Thousands of victims were feared still buried beneath the rubble two days after the first quake struck.
