The death toll from a powerful earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck Indonesia’s central island of Sulawesi on Sept. 28 has reached 1,234 as bodies continue to be found in the rubble, authorities said Oct. 2.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told a news conference in Jakarta that among the injured a total of 799 people suffered serious injuries, adding that 101 other people are listed as missing, including one South Korean and one Belgian.

Sutopo said refugees from the disaster now number 61,867 around the island.

There are 26 countries and two international organizations that have offered assistance in the form of air transportation, tents, water treatment facilities, generators, field hospitals and disinfectant, he told reporters.

Most of the deaths occurred in Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi province, and the nearby coastal town of Donggala, which together bore the brunt of the tsunamis.

The quake struck at 6:02 p.m., centered near Donggala. (Kyodo)
