Share this article


A powerful earthquake has hit Indonesia - causing a tsunami that's swept away houses and left families missing.

The 7-point-5 tremor struck central Sulawesi - where communications are down and the search and rescue effort is being hampered by darkness.

It happened after a tsunami warning was apparently lifted.
