Help Victims of Indonesian Earthquake

An earthquake with a magnitude of 8.7 shook Indonesia three months after a somewhat stronger quake triggered a tsunami that caused widespread devastation in the region and killed tens of thousands of people. There are no reports of tsunami waves as a result of the latest earthquakes.

Reports indicate that Nias Island, Simeulue Island and the Banyak islands, located off the southwest coast of Sumatra, are the areas worst affected. The islands’ death toll is reported at about 330, but officials said it could climb as high as 2,000.

The established cooperation among aid agencies and the government of Indonesia is coming to bear allowing them to respond quickly to the needs on the ground. Supply pipelines have been established to meet the emergency and reconstruction efforts underway since the December tsunami.
