Thousands of rescue workers in Indonesia continued to search for victims on Monday after a weekend tsunami struck the coastlines of western Java and the southern Sumatra islands, killing at least 373 people. The waves swept away locals and tourists on Saturday evening after the Anak Krakatau volcano erupted and triggered an underwater landslide.
“We request prayers from all over the country so that we are all given salvation, patience, and strength,” said Indonesian President Joko Widodo, who arrived to the area on Monday.
