A major earthquake, of 7.4 magnitude, rocked Central Sulawesi – a province located at the centre of Sulawesi Island, Indonesia – on Friday 28 September 2018 shortly after 17:00h local time. The epicenter of the quake, at a depth of 10km, was in Donggala Regency, which has a population of close to 300,000 people. A tsunami warning was issued by the Indonesian Meteorological and Climatological and Geophysical Agency (Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi, dan Geofisika or simply BMKG) shortly after the trembler struck. The quake generated a tsunami whose waves lashed coastal areas of Donggala and Palau with significant humanitarian impact. Indonesia – Sulawesi
