A tsunami in Indonesia crashed into the island of Sulawesi with an enormous wave, forcing terrified onlookers to flee inland to escape the water.
Footage from the Indonesia island caputered the moment the huge wave struck the coast submerging home and quickly reaching high buildings.

Onlookers can be heard screaming as the water approaches before fleeing away before the screen briefly turns to black.

The tsunami was reportedly sparked by a 7.7 magnitude earthquake that hit the island earlied on Friday.

One person was killed by the earthquake while 10 were reported injured after a powerful quake targeted Indonesia on Friday morning.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake was centered at a depth of six miles approximately 35 miles away from the town of Dongala, in the northeast of the country.

Purwo Nugroho from the National Disaster Mitigation agency warned locals to stay in safe and avoid damaged buildings.

In a televised interview, Mr Nugroho said: “We advise people to remain in safe areas, stay away from damaged buildings.”

He also warned the Indonesian Government expects “more damage and more victims” to be recorded in the coming hours.

The USGS has recently updated its seismology report to include the possibility of up to 10,000 people dying.

With a low proability of 10 percent, there is a real possibility of widespread death as a result.

USGS has said: “Recent earthquakes in this area have caused secondary hazards such as tsunamis that might have contributed to losses.”

Authorities were initially forced to raise a tunami warning for the city of 335,000, but has been dropped since.

In 2004, another earthquake off the coast of the Indonesian island of sumatra had sparked a tsunami that killed 226,000 people across 13 countries.
