Early estimates say at least 2,900 people are dead after an earthquake strikes the island of Java in central Indonesia.

A representative of the International Red Cross in Jakarta tells Linda Wertheimer about the damage and the beginning of relief efforts. The 6.2 quake hit near a highly populated area about 1,500 miles from the site of the worst damage of the 2004 tsunami that struck South Asia.
