The death toll rises after a series of tsunamis caused by an undersea quaked slammed the Samoan archipelago. Then the devastating quake in Western Sumatra, Indonesia:
"It measured 7.9, just shy of the size of earthquake that sparked [the] tsumani. ... Health Ministry crisis centre head Rustam Pakaya warning it could exceed 1,000 in the city of close to one million residents. Thousands of people were trapped as buildings, roads and bridges collapsed. The earthquake also triggered a landslide which cut power and telecommunications, resulting in further confusion."
The Padang Fault is the same fault line that triggered the catastrophic December 2004 tsunami that killed more than 200,000.
The tsunami death toll in Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga is at least 110 and will likely increase. American Samoa is said to be "in ruin".
