Three-metre tsunami hits Indonesian islands

(COURIER MAIL)   Australian Rick Hallett has told Channel 9 he was on his charter boat with guests when a two- to three-metre wall of water rolled into their bay in the Mentawai Islands.

He said it picked up one boat and swept it towards theirs which exploded.

They threw anything that floated into the water including surfboards and fenders and jumped in.

Mr Hallett said several people were carried 200 metres inland others scrambled up trees and amazingly no one was lost.

Sky News reported the tsunami was up to three metres high and hit Indonesia’s southern island of Pagai, with people having to be evacuated from the scene.
