Jakarta [Indonesia], Dec 23 (ANI): An unnerving video of the devastating tsunami that struck Indonesia on Saturday night has surfaced on Twitter.
In the video, the tsunami can be seen flattening a rock concert by an Indonesian band, 'Seventeen', at the Tanjung Lesung Beach Resort near the Sunda Strait.



The bassist and the road manager of the band have been killed in the natural calamity, while several crew members are missing.
The lead singer, Riefian Fajarsyah, survived the disaster but his wife, who was in the crowd, is missing. He posted an emotional tribute to his band and his wife on Instagram on Sunday, urging people to pray for them to be found.
"Today is your birthday, I want to say it right away, hurry home, dear," Fajarsyah wrote on Instagram with a picture of his wife and him in Paris.
Over 168 people have lost their lives in Saturday's tsunami, while over 700 are missing. Rescue efforts are underway as the death toll is expected to rise.
"The Geological Agency detected at 21.03 local time the Anak Krakatau (the volcano) erupted," Indonesia's meteorological, climatological and geological agency said, while adding that the tsunami struck just 24 minutes after the volcanic eruption.
"It's possible the materials around Anak Krakatau collapsed to the sea and triggered the tsunami and affected beaches around Sunda Strait," the organisation said. (ANI)
