A series of powerful earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday, September 28. The largest quake, a powerful magnitude 7.4, shook the region at 5:02 p.m. local time, triggering a tsunami, major liquefaction and landslides that hit nearby coastlines, including the coastal city of Palu. The quake was centered about 35 miles northeast of Donggala and 50 miles north of Palu, which have a combined population of more than 600,000 people. The following recommendation are based on the findings of the IMC Emergency Response Team’s initial Indonesia assessment and strongly consider the GoI’s limited acceptance of international support. In addition, IMC has already secured funding for a response and should look for the most expedient means to program those funds that support relief and recovery efforts.
