Crews Struggle To Reach Victims As Toll Rises In Indonesia Quake

(CNN) The death toll from the 7.7-magnitude earthquake that struck off Indonesia has risen to 154, officials said Wednesday.

Another 400 are missing from the quake that struck Monday and triggered a tsunami.

The numbers of dead and injured were in flux because information was trickling in from remote parts of Indonesia, a country made up of myriad islands.

"The worst hit area is north and south Pagai Island. Reports of villages flattened are coming from there," said Antorizon of the disaster management center in West Sumatra.

Like many Indonesians, Antorizon goes by one name.

On Wednesday, rescuers deployed with hundreds of body bags as they struggled to reach victims.
