I've seen it again today and yes, the World Engine destroys most of the buildings before Superman shows up.
Good thing he spent all that time in the unpopulated place...

What was the reason why he was over there and the US military worked on the one in Metropolis? I don't remember.
I can't remember if they ever actually specified a reason, but I always assumed it was because Superman could get out there a lot faster than they could. The World Engine was in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
It's also possible, depending on where it was situated, that the one in the Indian Ocean might have set off massive earthquakes resulting in even greater loss of life much quicker than anywhere else.
