Tsunami:Over 280 dead, 1000 injured on islands of Java and Sumatra

At least 280 people were killed and another 1000 injured on the islands of Sumatra and Java after a tsunami struck coastal areas around the Sunda Strait on Saturday night. The tsunami was caused by “an undersea landslide resulting from volcanic activity on Anak Krakatau” and was exacerbated by abnormally high tide because of the current full moon, Indonesia’s disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.

Hundreds of homes were “heavily damaged” and “many are missing”. The deaths bring back memories of December 26, 2004, when an Indian Ocean tsunami triggered by an earthquake killed 226,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia. ...

All the more reason why the only thing the US can do is to allow every single inhabitant of these islands to immigrate to the US to establish a New Life there. Surely, the poverty, crime and corruption in Central America is less important a reason to allow thousands to flood across the US/Mexican border willy nilly, than this tsunami.
I know that some may answer that we don't have enough room here, or enough jobs for them, or even that they should move to Japan, which is fast depleting itself of native Japanese, and only now is debating a new bill to allow immigrants to stay longer and bring their families.

What I saw here, the earthquake at the volcano happened about 20 minutes before the big wave hit. There is no equipment around that would be of much help to determine if there was a tsunami coming or not

This is a fairly good explanation at the end of the article, (Indonesia tsunami: Death toll rises to 373 amid fears Krakatoa could trigger another wave any time)

The correct and proper humanitarian response to this natural disaster (Act of God for insurance folk) is to allow an unrestricted flow of people from these islands to immigrate to the US, paid for by US taxpayers. Then they can stay 'temporarily' just like the Central Americans who came in over a dozen years ago when Hurricane Michael (?) struck. Anyone remember that?

Key points:

• More than 12,000 residents have fled to higher ground amid further tsunami warnings
• A high tide warning has been extended to Wednesday
• 64 hectares of the volcanic island Anak Krakatau was dumped into the sea
"At least 373 people have died, while 128 people are currently missing," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokeperson for Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency.

According to initial news reports, it appears that an underwater landslide was triggered by volcanic activity at the site of the infamous Krakatoa volcano – specifically, Anak Krakatau, the frequently erupting baby volcano growing in the annihilated heart of the older, larger edifice. This landslide pushed away plenty of water, and a tsunami was generated.
excerpt from: "Tsunami Possibly Triggered By Anak Krakatau Strikes Indonesia. Here's What You Need To Know"

A detailed article from Forbes about the infamous volcano. It has quite a few pictures along with it to make it more interesting yet. 🌋
