Palu tsunami clue found on seafloor

Tuesday 22:46 GMT

This, combined with a sharp movement of the crust northwards, could certainly have produced a tsunami, the Indonesian scientist said.

This history is evidenced in the local culture where there are specific words to describe features of a tsunami and a quake. In the September event, Palu witnessed a lot liquefaction, where the structure of soils in the city was seen to collapse, to become fluidised and flow even on very low gradients.
