there is a foreign office number to call if ur worried about anyone
Does anybody know how badly Bali was affected? The only thing I can find about Indonesia mentions that the northern tip was most badly affected, and the BBC map showing the affected area cuts off halfway down Indonesia. A good friend of mine from uni is there for a wedding at the moment...
Yeah I was worried about my friend who is on holiday travelling around that area of the world. Just found out that she is currently in Fiji though so I am relieved!
Death toll greater than 9000.
This is awful.
The earthquake was recorded several hours before the waves struck - so were people warned?
communications are hardly top notch in that part of the world as a whole...
its all about communications and people actually talking to other people. tsunami warnings can be available but if the information doesnt get to the people then its useless. unfortunatly it seems to be like this all over the world, thus when extreme events like this happen people can do nothing
My uncle and aunt are in india. I really hope they are ok. Inshallah (what we muslims say as what god wills to happen will happen) they and anyone else people are worried about will be ok.
What are the estimates of the strength of the aftershocks?
theres like what 6000 dead?
Saw it on the Russian News this morning on SBS followed by the Spanish and French news, couldnt understand much but still.
CNN now says 14,000 confirmed dead.
