"Landslides triggered the 1992 Maumere tsunami and the Palu 2018 tsunami", Nugroho said via the Guardian, noting that the country's buoy network has not been properly operating since 2012.

The geophysics agency said the volcano erupted 24 minutes before the tsunami hit the islands, according to the AP. That disaster killed more than 30,000 people, launched far-reaching tsunamis, and spewed so much ash into the atmosphere that day was turned to night in the area and temperatures dropped worldwide. "This was a volcanic tsunami.it did not rise to the level of triggering an alert". It continues to grow each year and erupts periodically.

Indonesia is a vast stretch of islands that lies at the margins of the Pacific Ocean where an intersection of large layers of the Earth's crust causes frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Roads and infrastructure are poor in many areas of disaster-prone Indonesia, making access hard in the best of conditions.
