Indonesia earthquake: Rescuers look for survivors following deadly quake on Sulawesi island

A strong earthquake hit Indonesia’s Sulawesi island on Friday, killing at least 42 people, the country’s National Disaster Management Agency said.

Thousands of residents fled their homes for higher ground when the magnitude 6.2-quake struck 6 km (3.73 miles) northeast of the town of Majene shortly before 1.30 a.m.

The quake unleashed dozens of aftershocks, as authorities warned of more quakes that could trigger a tsunami.

Indonesian search and rescue workers raced to find survivors, as the quake and aftershocks damaged more than 300 homes, two hotels, and flattened a hospital and the office of a regional governor, where authorities told Reuters several people has been trapped under the rubble.

More deaths are likely to be confirmed as rescue workers fan out, said Darno Majid, the chief of the disaster agency in West Sulawesi.
