The number of tsunami victims in Indonesia rose to 334 people

The number of tsunami victims in Indonesia rose to 334, affected more than 3,000 people, reports Antara, citing data from the Agency for emergency management of Indonesia (Basarnas).

At the moment, 61 people are considered missing, but it is possible that this number may grow. Earlier it was reported about 222 dead.
The disaster occurred on the night of December 23 in the Sunda Strait, separating the Islands of Java and Sumatra. A strong wave could be caused by the recent eruption of the Anak-Krakatoa volcano.
Initially, the Indonesian Agency for meteorology, climate and Geophysics warned of the threat of high waves in the Sunda Strait without declaring a tsunami threat.
