Dubai: The UAE Embassy in Jakarta has issued a travel advisory to Emiratis, urging them to take precautions and monitor weather developments in Sunda Strait.
At least 281 people were killed in tsunami waves of up to three metres (10 feet) that hit several towns along the rim of the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra islands, triggered by a landslide on the Anak Krakatau volcano.
The UAE Embassy, in a tweet, advised "citizens to take precautions and communicate with the embassy in the event of an emergency”.
“It is extremely important that the UAE Embassy in Indonesia is also monitoring the tide levels in the region of Anyer. We urge citizens to call +62 215206518 for all queries or in cases of emergency”, it said.
