The Sunda Strait in Indonesia was ravished by a tsunami in December of 2018 caused by the Anak Krakatau volcano. Early numbers indicate the deaths of 429 people, 1,485 injured, 154 missing, and 16,082 displaced with figures expected to rise. The tsunami zeroed in on Carita Beach in Baten Province hitting the coastline and damaging the districts of Pandenglag, South Lampung and Serang.
HHRD has been working with its partner organization PKPU in Indonesia following the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami that rocked Sulawesi, Palu, and Donggala in September 2018. Located in what is known as the "Pacific Ring of Fire" Indonesia is prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and floods. The most infamous quake, which in turn caused a tsunami, was in 2004 and cost 230,000 people their lives.
