Kaharuddin, 40, waits for excavators to dig up a pile of concrete that used to be his home and was destroyed by an earthquake in Balaroa neighbourhood, Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, October 10, 2018. Kaharuddin believes under the rubble may be the body of his one-year-old daughter. The remains of his wife, Hastuti, were found under the debris four days after the quake, still holding the bodies of two of their other daughters, aged 4 and 2. "I don't know what to do next. There's nothing left for me here," said Kaharuddin. "I'm just going to wait and hope they find my child. Or maybe I have to accept that one will have to remain buried here."

Darmi, 48, and her brother Rusli, 43, stand outside her destroyed house hit by an earthquake as they look for clothes and other belongings in the rubble, in Balaroa neighbourhood, Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, October 10, 2018. The two-storey building collapsed. Darmi was in her kitchen cooking, with her older sister, her sister's two children, and three grandchildren in the house when the earthquake struck. They ran out of the house and headed for the hills as the ground started to give way beneath them. All of them are safe. "We were lucky because the soil pushed our house upwards. There were some houses here that just collapsed into the ground... It felt like the earth was alive. It was opening up, swallowing people, and then closing again. And the noise was so loud. This loud cracking 'k-k-k-k' sound," said Darmi. REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "QUAKE SURVIVORS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

Andayani lost her younger sister in the quake. Returning to Balaroa for the first time, nearly two weeks after disaster struck, she was shocked to find that her childhood home had slid downhill, far from its original spot. "It took so long for me to find it," she said, through tears. "I don't know where we can live now." REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "QUAKE SURVIVORS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

"I bought this car for my parents," he said. "They're gone now but it's still a good car. I'd like to have it back, it's the only thing of theirs I have now." Yassir recounted a harrowing experience, watching his parents and niece suffocate to death after they were trapped in a concrete hole filled with water when the quake hit. "I found them in the morning after the earthquake. I managed to speak with them, even gave them some water to drink," he said. "But they were crushed against each other, and the water must have been cold. After a while, they just stopped breathing." REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "QUAKE SURVIVORS" FOR THIS STORY.

The family was in a light-hearted and happy mood despite their circumstances. Nita described a miracle amid the tragedy: she lost her one-year-old daughter in the earthquake only to find her again at a shelter three days later. The child had been found and rescued by a neighbour. "When we saw the ground moving, we just started running. I saw the asphalt rising. I was carrying my three-year-old in one arm and holding my seven-year-old sister in the other hand. I was running and I was looking for my baby, but I couldn't find her," Nita recalled. "We looked everywhere afterwards, and I was so worried. Finally, someone suggested we looked at one of the shelters nearby and there she was. I was just so relieved and happy to find her."
