Indonesia earthquake: How to prepare for tsunamis & the race to reach survivors
Date created :
In Indonesia, the harrowing race to reach survivors is on. 72 hours after the earthquakes and tsunami struck Central Sulawesi, the death toll has reached 844 and is sure to rise further. Our panel looks at the challenges facing rescuers and survivors. We ask what lessons have been learned since the giant tsunami of 2004. Earthquakes cannot be blamed on global warming. But we ask about preparedness in a nation with a fast-growing population in exposed areas. How to be better prepared?
