Indonesia tsunami LIVE: Palu hit by massive wave after 7.5-magnitude earthquake


A tsunami has struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi following a major 7.5-magnitude earthquake.

Shocking footage shows giant waves crashing into the area apparently recorded in Palu today, where the water leaves a trail of destruction in its wake.

The tsunami of up to two metres hit the city after a powerful earthquake rocked central Sulawesi.

The huge tremor follows a milder quake, which destroyed some homes, killing one person and injuring at least 10 others.

Earlier today, Indonesia’s meteorology agency issued early tsunami warnings for people in Central Sulawesi and West Sulawesi provinces.

Officials say waters have since receded, but families are still missing.
