A 6.2 Richter scale earthquake hit Indonesia's South Sulawesi province on Friday. So far, at least 46 deaths have been confirmed, and hundreds of injuries.

The rescue operation to rescue the people who might be still trapped is underway but has been massively impacted by a lack of equipment.

According to officials, damaged roads and bridges, power outage and lack of heavy gears have hampered the rescue operation.

The rescue operations are oriented on about eight locations in the hardest-hit city of Mamuju, where people are still believed to be trapped.

At least 415 houses have been damaged by the quake.

Even those with houses all fine are afraid to go to the house due to the possible heavy tremors.
