Deadly ground Alinda-Jane Hannah, a New Zealander living in Phuket, was nearly killed by the Dec. 26 tsunami. Driving along a road in the beachside town of Kamala, she and her 3-year-old daughter Nakita-Rose were almost washed away by the waves as they swamped the eastern coast of the island.

The president director of the State Electricity Company (PLN), Eddie Widiono, seems to be clairvoyant. Two years ago, at a seminar on electricity in Jakarta, he made a prediction that by 2003, Java-Bali would be shrouded in darkness. The reason: scarce electricity supply due to minimum PLN investments. Widiono's estimate might just be optimistic. On September 12, Asep, a resident of Cibinong, Bogor, nearly had a heart attack. A huge explosion shook his house, followed a second later by total darkness. The thundering noise came directly from next door, an electrical relay station handling extremely high voltages. Rushing outside, Asep saw one of the poles inside the station burning. "Wow, the noise was totally deafening, just like a bomb," he said. "Then there were fireworks and a sharp burning smell," he said.
