At least 373 people have been killed as a tidal wave hit beaches around Sunda Strait in Indonesia Saturday night, according to the country's Disaster Mitigation Agency. More than 1,400 have been injured.
The Indonesian Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) said the wave was the result of volcanic activity at Mount Krakatoa. The Tsunami Alert Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had not reported any possibility of a tsunami. A high-tide warning was extended to Wednesday.
Indonesian military and rescue teams fanned out across a stretch of coastline Monday, hoping to find survivors. Rescuers using heavy machinery and their bare hands searched through debris, pulling out bodies in the worst-affected areas on the west coast of Java island, where hundreds of soldiers and volunteers looked for victims along a 100 km (60 miles) stretch of shore.
