Indonesian officials says the death toll from Monday's tsunami has climbed to at least 668 people.
Officials today (Saturday) said the body count increased after nearly 100 bodies were found strewn in parts of Ciamis district in western Java.
A powerful earthquake off the coast of Java island generated a crushing wave that barreled through homes, restaurants and hotels in the Pangandaran area Monday.
Disaster officials say at least 287 people are still missing, and hundreds are injured.
Indonesian aid workers have been working overtime for months, since a major earthquake struck Yogyakarta in May, killing 57-hundred people.
And the country is still rebuilding from the massive Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 150-thousand people in Aceh province and at least 220-thousand throughout the region, almost two years ago.
