At least 844 were confirmed dead and the toll was expected to climb, with heavily populated areas cut off from any assistance. Rescuers, with only rudimentary tools, were racing to find survivors in the debris after disaster struck Indonesia's Sulawesi island on Friday leading to large-scale destruction and food, water and fuel shortage.
