The death toll in a tsunami that hit western Indonesia on Saturday rose to 222, Indonesia's national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.
According to the official, 843 others have been injured, while 28 are missing.
"This number is predicted to increase because not all victims have been successfully evacuated, not all health centres have reported victims and not all locations have got complete data."
According to local media outlets citing eyewitnesses, the recent tsunami may have been caused by an eruption of the Krakatau volcano.
The western coast of Indonesia was hit by tsunami at 9:27 p.m. local time [14:27 GMT] on Saturday.

The Sunda Strait, between the islands of Java and Sumatra, connects the Java Sea to the Indian Ocean. In September, at least 832 people were killed by a quake and tsunami that hit the city of Palu on the island of Sulawesi, east of Borneo.
