Banten, 23 Dec 2018 – At least 222 people died following the tsunami that hit Anyer coast and Lampung, Indonesia while more than 850 wounded and another 28 are still missing, as reported by National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

No earthquake was reported initially triggering a tsunami around Sunda Strait and Indian Ocean. However, Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Council (BMKG) confirmed the eruption of Mount Karakatau possibily caused the tsunami.

The roads in Serang and Pandagelang are badly destroyed as a result of tsunami that hit the shore.
