162 killed in earthquake in Java in Indonesia, Cianjur devastated

The tremblor was not one of the strongest but it was shallow and occurred within the land and therefore the casualties were high. The epicentre was Cianjur, 75 km south-east of Jakarta.

JAKARTA, Nov 22: An earthquake rocked Java, Indonesian island, at 1:21 pm local time on Monday killing 162 people, injuring several hundreds, and leaving a trail of devastation. The quake measured 5.6 on Richter scale. Search is on for survivors trapped under the rubble. A series of aftershocks also followed.

The tremblor was not one of the strongest but it was shallow and occurred within the land and therefore the casualties were high.

The epicentre was the Cianjur in mountainous West Java, 75 km southeast of Capital Jakarta, at a depth of 10 km. Cianjur has mostly single and two-storey buildings. Hundreds of buildings, including schools, hospitals and others housing public facilities were damaged. Power failure hampered treatment of the injured at hospitals. There are four hospitals in the town. Helicopters are dropping medicines.

The quake was felt in Jakarta. High-rise buildings in the Capital swayed. People ran out of offices and homes.

In February 2022, a 6.2 earthquake killed 25 people and injured 460 others in West Sumatra province. In January 2021, another major earthquake killed over 100 people and injured 6,500 in West Sulawesi province. Located on the ‘Ring of Fire’, Indonesia experiences frequent earthquakes and tsunamis. It has a population of 270 million.
