The death toll continues to rise as rescue workers recover bodies of those killed by an earthquake and tsunami that struck Sulawesi, Indonesia, on September 28. Some perished when their homes collapsed. Others were carried out to sea when the twenty-foot tsunami wave swept ashore. The official death toll is around 1,400, but many are not yet accounted for. The earthquake and tsunami destroyed at least 66,000 homes.
