Indonesia death toll passes 1,400

October 3, 2018 -- A picture of large scale destruction has emerged in Palu city following the earthquake and tsunami that struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday.

The death toll has passed 1,400 but officials warn that the number of casualties could rise into the thousands. Palu was one of the worst-affected areas, with several neighbourhoods almost completely wiped out.

While coastal areas took heavy damage because of the tsunami, satellite images reveal large inland flows of mud that caused severe damage in densely populated areas. Intense shaking from the earthquake may have triggered liquefaction and lateral spreading, processes in which wet sand and silt takes on the characteristics of a liquid.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
