UPDATE 4 – Tsunami Kills 272, Hundreds Missing


At least 272 people were killed and another 412 remain missing after a powerful earthquake triggered a tsunami in off Sumatra, an official said on Wednesday.

“We’ve recovered 272 bodies. At least 412 people are still missing,” West Sumatra provincial disaster management official Ade Edward said.

“We’re still looking for those missing. They could be in the hills, buried by rubble or could have been swept out to sea,” he added.

The bodies were found in districts of South Pagai, North Pagai, Sikakap and South Sipora, he said.

“Fifteen people sustained serious injuries such as broken limbs,” he said.

    Hi Sophea, Bali is far from Sumatra and I believe there will be no affects from the tsunami, in Bali. Back to 2004 during the deadly tsunami, I knew the tsunami from tv and sms from relatives because we did not feel anything in Bali….
