Pagai islands tsunami – Australian surfers fled in the trees for waves

October 26 – 05:45 UTC UPDATE
Australian surfers fled to the trees when a tsunami struck the Pagai islands.

Australian surfers were carried more than 200m inland when a tsunami destroyed the boat they were on off the Indonesian island of Pagai.

The three-metre high tsunami destroyed the charter boat, though the 15 people aboard managed to survive by clinging to floating objects.

The group were then forced to climb trees to avoid more large waves coming inland after a major 7.5-magnitude earthquake, Nine News reported.
