Java tsunami death toll increases

Please say a prayer for the victims of the latest tragedy in Indonesia.

Yesterday, when I first heard about the tsunami that hit Java, I didn't think it was that serious.

Today read that the death toll from has now reached at least 463, with nearly 280 people missing.

The cause of the tsunami was an undersea earthquake with a magnitude 7.7 quake, which created waves more than six feet high.

and the worse thing is, the javanese govt already had a 20-30min warning, but they failed to act on it and inform those living along the coast...

I can say that i don't think that indonesian govt can do the right thing to alert them.. They seem don't enough care about the citizen..

Sad when I learnt that they could have done something but they didn't.
