Earthquake in Indonesia

A 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit near the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a 3-metre tsunami, which smashed into two cities on the coast.

Palu and Donggala are the cities affected the worst, and they are home to over 600,000 people. At least 832 people have been confirmed dead, thousands of homes collapsed, along with hospitals, hotels, and a shopping centre. The disaster affected as many as 1.6 million people, according to Red Cross estimates.

Difficult words: trigger (start), estimate (a careful guess based on data).
