More than 2,000 bodies have been recovered since the twin disaster, which also flattened the fishing city of Donggala.

The consequences of this double disaster is brutal and tragic 

Firemen dig through the rubble in search for tsunami victims in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The Indonesian authorities ended the rescue effort on Thursday October 11.

But authorities fear at least twice that number could be buried beneath the ruble of the ruined cities, where entire villages were swallowed.

Rescuers had struggled to find remains in the twisted wreckage, a job made worse as mud hardened and bodies decomposed in the tropical heat.

The government earlier indicated these hard-hit areas would be left untouched as mass graves. Parks and monuments are planned at three of these worst-hit areas - Balaroa, Petobo and Jono Oge - to commemorate the possibly thousands of lost people who will never found.

Those zones were all but destroyed by liquefaction, a phenomenon where the brute force of a quake turns soil to quicksand.

Humanitarian assistance has poured into the disaster-ravaged city but the recovery effort has been criticised for moving too slowly.

The UN says 200,000 people are in dire need of humanitarian assistance in Palu, with clean drinking water and medical supplies still in short supply.

An estimated 80,000 people were displaced by the disaster, many squatting in tents outside their destroyed homes.
