The Monday’s tsunami crashed into the Java island’s beach resorts and fishing villages and already killed more than 300 people, leaving more than 160 missing. The habitats and victims there could not take precautions and measures against the devastation as bulletins failed to reach the region.
After huge investments in the warning systems’ development for the last two years, nothing worked due to unorganized and unplanned working on it — no warning system was in place to aware the habitats.
At least 23,000 people fled fro the inlands, either because of the destruction they faced or fearing of another tsunami, Dudi Junaidi said Tuesday. He is an official at an emergency coordination post on Java’s southern coast’s worst-hit area of Pangandaran.
