Many lives spared at Indonesia quake epicentre by earlier shake

The lives of many villagers living at the epicenter of a devastating earthquake that struck Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island and killed more than 1,600 people were spared because they had been terrified by a smaller one that hit three hours earlier. A coastal strip dotted with villages north of the devastated city of Palu was cut off for nearly a week by landslides blocking its single road link. But the way is now open and aid is starting to trickle in to the area that rescue workers feared had been obliterated. While destruction is extensive, with many houses destroyed, countless lives were saved by a 6.1 magnitude quake that struck about 20 km to the south about three hours earlier.
