A tsunami following the eruption of Mt. Anak Krakatau on the Sunda Strait has hit Banten and Lampung coastal
areas on Saturday (22/12). The two meter high waves has killed at least 429 people and injured 1,485 others. As

Sulastama Raharja, KAGAMACare representative, said a team of assessment consisting of 5 volunteers had come to check
the condition in South Lampung.
“This team will prepare the aid station, work programme, and logistics distribution on the site,” he said.
