843 injured at last count
Tsunami from erupting Anak Krakatau (Child of Krakatau) kills at least 222 in Indonesia.
The deadly tsunami, apparently caused by an underwater landslide on slopes of the volcanic island, struck in the dark without warning.
The ground did not shake beforehand to alert people to the oncoming wave that ripped buildings from their foundations in seconds and swept terrified concertgoers on a popular resort beach into the sea.
Azki Kurniawan, 16, said his first warning about the tsunami was when people burst into the lobby of the Patra Comfort Hotel shouting, “Sea water rising!”
