The 7.6-magnitude earthquake is estimated to have killed over 1,100 people Wednesday evening, the New York Times said. A 6.6-magnitude aftershock hit 16 hours later.
On Friday, in the town of Padang Pariaman, officials counted up to 80 percent damaged buildings and 207 deaths, the New York Times said. Officials estimated that over 282 people lay trapped under landslides, but no police officials were seen until later in the day.
The Department for International Development team from the United Kingdom was delayed in its rescue efforts due to technical issues, BBC News said. The DfID is sending aid, though, with material goods, medics, and humanitarian experts.
No authorities have come to help, Sutan Maskuri, 55, told the New York Times 44 hours after the disaster. Maskuri sent his sister to a regional hospital after no aid appeared for a landslide that killed five siblings.
