Indonesia earthquake: Watch the video of Tsunami crashing into island with huge wave
Jakarta, Sep 28: A spokesman for Indonesia's geophysics agency says a powerful Sulawesi earthquake caused a tsunami, apparently after the agency lifted a tsunami warning.
In the shocking footage, apparently recorded in Palu, Sulawesi, today, enormous waves can be seen surging forward amid terrified screams.

The water knocks down homes, leaving a trail of destruction in its path.
The video comes as officials have confirmed a tsunami of up to two metres hit the city after a powerful earthquake rocked central Sulawesi.
The earthquake hit the island earlier today - just hours after a smaller tremor destroyed homes, killed one person and injured 10 others.
