Indonesia’s disaster agency says the death toll from the weekend tsunami has climbed to 373.

Disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said Monday that 128 others were missing in the disaster, with 1,459 injured.

The tsunami that hit the coasts of Indonesian islands along the Sunda Strait was not big but it was destructive. The waves smashed onto beaches in the darkness Saturday night without warning, ripping houses and hotels from their foundations in seconds and sweeping terrified concertgoers into the sea.

Broken lumber and bricks, smashed cars, and puddles of seawater were left behind. Government personnel and volunteers were searching debris-strewn beaches for survivors and bodies, while families tried to identify their loved ones and grieved for the dead.

Survivors say the wave they experienced was about a meter (3.3 feet) high and swept 15-20 meters (50-65 feet) inland. Scientists say it was set off by an eruption and possible landslide on the volcanic island of Anak Krakatau, which has been erupting since June.
