On Friday September 28, a 7.5-magnitude earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles) just off the central island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, setting off a tsunami that has engulfed the coastal city of Palu.
In the jarring footage above you can see the exact moment the tsunami hits and the devastating speed and power of the seas it carries. The bustling city is home to some 350,000 residents and the death toll has tragically risen to nearly 1,350 souls.
