Last week a 7.5 earthquake hit Indonesia
, 940 miles from the capital of Jakarta. The death toll has been climbing everyday with the official estimate at 844 as of October 1st from the World Economic Forum
. Other sources since that reporting have now put the number closer to 1500
Thousands of people have been displaced with countless homes destroyed, after the earthquake and tsunami struck unsuspecting people when the Indonesian emergency warning system failed
to go off. The Indonesian Red Cross has distributed 70 tons of supplies including water trucks and food. Emergency crews
are working exceptionally hard to access people trapped under debris as the window for saving them closes.
