KONTAN.CO.ID - BANTEN. The tsunami that hit the Sunda Strait on Saturday night has resulted in at least 62 fatalities, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) reported on Sunday.

BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said that 62 people had been killed, while 584 others were injured and two were missing after a tsunami hit beaches in Banten and Lampung.

Pandeglang regency in Banten was the worst-hit area with 33 dead and 491 injured. Four hundred houses, nine hotels and 10 boats in the area were also badly damaged.

"When the incident occurred, there were many tourists visiting the beaches along Pandeglang," Sutopo said in a statement.

He added that seven people died in South Lampung regency, while three people died in Serang regency, Banten.

"Heavy machinery has been deployed to help in the evacuation and emergency repairs," he said.

"Residents are urged not to conduct any activities along the beach at this time. The BMKG [Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency] and the Geological Agency are still conducting studies to ascertain the cause of the tsunami and the probability of additional ones."
