Indonesian earthquake

While the Samoan quake and resulting tsunami held the headlines in New Zealand, an even bigger tragedy unfolded in Indonesia, with a quake of magnitude 7.6 that triggered massive landslides that have buried entire villages under mud and rubble. It's expected that the death toll will be over 3000.

Unfortunately, geologists say that the worst is yet to come for Sumatra -

The current problem facing both Sumatra and the areas affected by the Samoan quake is the health problems associated with having decomposing bodies in the area.
