At least 20 dead, 165 injured after tsunami in Indonesia, officials say

Officials say at least 20 people are dead and 165 are wounded after tsunami struck the coast of Indonesia Saturday.

The National Disaster Management Agency confirmed the tsunami struck Saturday night, leaving dozens of buildings damaged and at least 165 poeple injured. Another 20 people were reported dead.

The Meteorology and Geophysics agency, in a separate statement, said it could have been caused by undersea landslides from Anak Krakatau, a volcanic island formed over years from the Krakatau volcano, which last erupted in October.

The Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra connects the Java Sea to the Indian Ocean.
