Eight Taiwanese nationals are reported trapped in southern Sumatra’s South Lampung Regency after a series of waves hit coastal regions around the Sunda Strait last night, Saturday, December 22.

A Taiwanese businessman representing the Three Wheels Foundation charity group told Taiwan’s Central News Agency that a group of eight tourists were affected by the disaster.

Two adults in the group are reported to be relatively seriously injured after being hit by heavy objects while escaping from the waves, and are unable to walk, or to get to a hospital. The injured are being cared for by local nursing staff at a private residence where the group is taking refuge.

One of two children with the group is also reported to have suffered abrasions, according to the CNA report.    [FULL  STORY]
