Tsunami Hits Indonesian Island After Massive 7.5 Earthquake

Footage shows massive waves crashing into an Indonesian island as a tsunami struck after a 7.5-magnitude earthquake.

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 and smashes into trees, leaving a trail of destruction in its path, as residents cry out and try to run to safety.

The footage comes as officials have confirmed a tsunami of up to two metres hit the city after a powerful earthquake rocked central Sulawesi.

Officials say waters have since receded, but families are missing.
