Major 7.0-magnitude quake hits Papua New Guinea; Indonesia's Bali rattled

Major 7.0-magnitude quake hits Papua New Guinea; Indonesia's Bali rattled

Debris would be cleared and areas where bodies lie would eventually be turned into parks, sports venues and memorials.

They were briefed by the country's top disaster official, Willem Rampangilei, and Central Sulawesi Gov. Longki Djanggola on the damage caused by the September 28 quake, which triggered a tsunami that swept away houses, crumpled cars and beached numerous ships.

The USGS put the epicenter at 40 km (25 miles) northeast of Sumberanyar on Java island.

"Our local team is on the ground in Palu and has a network of volunteers working in Donggala, delivering essential, life-saving supplies".

Nugroho said Thursday's quake was not related to the Palu quake since the faults that triggered them are different.

At least nine excavators were working through the rubble of Balaroa on Tuesday, picking their way through smashed buildings and pummeled vehicles.

But recovering the remains of missing residents whose bodies were in an advanced state of decomposition could lead to outbreaks of infectious disease, officials warned.

"What's important is that we get support from the government", said Sapri, who lost 10 members of his family at Balaroa.

"We should not forget that there will be many disasters to come".

Antonella is facing a felony charge of heroin distribution of 100g or more and she's now being held without bond. This didn't seem to affect her from appearing on an episode of Fear Factor the following year, though.

Nugroho said the disaster agency has not yet been able to verify unofficial estimates from village chiefs in Balaroa and Petobo that 5,000 people are missing in the two areas.

"I prayed that this disaster will end soon", said Rostin Timaloto, a 58-year-old woman. "I couldn't do it on my own".

Indonesia's disaster agency issued a set of rules over the weekend instructing global staff to leave Palu, and requiring foreign donations be channelled through local partners.

The quake near Bali caused brief panic among residents, although there was no tsunami alert issued.

But it has accepted help from overseas to cope with the Sulawesi disaster.

The planned event set to kick off yesterday - the "Peoples' Global Conference against IMF-WB" - has had its approval yanked by police, and the venue host cancelled, organisers said.

"Foreign NGOs who have deployed their foreign personnel are advised to retrieve their personnel immediately". "We've stayed here for too long". Many Indonesians go by one name. The archipelago is often rattled by earthquakes and the occasional tsunami.

Indonesia on Thursday extended for a day the search for victims of a 7.5 magnitude quake and tsunami on Sulawesi island at the request of relatives of the many still missing, the national disaster mitigation agency said.
