On Saturday the 22nd of December, between 9 – 10 pm, a tsunami occurred in the coastal area of the Sunda Strait. Satellite images shows the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau caused the collapse of a mountain slope, resulting in an underwater landslide, which triggered a tsunami. Based on BMKG (Indonesian Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency) observations, tsunamis with wave heights of 0.28 meters to 0.9 meters hit the western part of Banten Province and south Lampung Province.

According to BNPB (Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management), as at 25th December, the areas worst affected on the island of Java include Carita Subdistrict (71 fatalities), Panimbang Subdistrict (126 fatalities), Cinangka Subdistrict (14 fatalities), Labuan Subdistrict (13 fatalities), and Sumur Subdistrict (39 fatalities). On  the island of Sumatra in Lampung Province, the affected areas include Sidomulyo, Subdistrict, Kalianda Subdistrict, Kelumbayan Subdistrict, and Punduh Pidada Subdistrict (South Lampung, with a total of 70 fatalities).
