Paris: The only reason for the tsunami that took place in the Indonesian city of Palu was no earthquake, but there were many other causes behind this disaster. The scientists said that besides the earthquake, many other factors, including long, narrow bay, caused horrific waves. At least 844 people have been confirmed dead in this calamity so far and officials say that the number of dead can increase, maybe thousands can reach. On Friday evening, the 7.5-magnitude earthquake caused panoramas to all the buildings in the whole of Palu and surrounding areas.

Zen Cunin, the researcher of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Curtin University, Western Australia, says that it is not possible to have only geophysic conditions in the reasons behind the killing of hundreds of people and destruction of structures. He said, “The waves were at least two to three meters high and probably two times more than that.” The tsunami warning system of the Indian Ocean has been developed under the guidance of the United Nations. However, according to the intensity of the earthquake, then there should not have been such a terrible tsunami.
Baptist Gombert, a specialist in tectonics at the Earth Sciences Department of Oxford University, said that the tsunami often comes from the so-called ‘Thrust’ earthquake, but the Tsunami in Peru was the opposite, Because of the ‘strike slip fault’, according to I. Cunin, due to the ‘strike slip fault’, tsunami feared is very low because Due to the sea surface does not rise upwards. According to experts, due to the three factors, this fatal tsunami had come. The lower area of the first channel of the first ocean water ended on the pot. The size of the second bay and the third reason was the location and scale of the earthquake.
