Deadly earthquake hits Indonesia's Sulawesi island | DW News

An earthquake struck Indonesia's Sulawesi island early on Friday morning, leaving at least 34 people dead and injuring over 600 others. The head of the local disaster mitigation agency Ali Rahman told AFP that "the latest information we have is that 26 people are dead in Mamuju city." The national disaster agency said that a further eight people had died to the south of the city. Many buildings were damaged. Two hospitals and the building that houses the provincial government offices collapsed, said Muhammad Idris, secretary to the governor on national television. A large number of people are trapped under the rubble, officials said. The epicenter of the 6.2 magnitude quake was 6 kilometers (3.73 miles) northeast of Majene city and measured at a depth of 18 kilometers. Thousands of people left their homes when the quake hit. They were evacuated to temporary shelters.

It would be interesting to set up some kind of engineering NGO to come up with ways to teach local people how to inspect buildings for earthquake risks and maybe even retrofit them to make them more stable. Maybe work with local construction methods to improve them in cost effective ways to improve their seismic resilience.

I'm from the place where the southern philippines hit by earthquake swarm with not less than 5 magnitudes + 3 Major quakes with 6.4, 6.6, and damn 6.9 just in 2 months. Luckily for us, we only have few casualties some old buildings are destroyed though. Stay strong neighbor we feel your shaking.

Earthquakes up to 6 times (if another aftershock causes a tsunami, info from BMKG)
And a pandemic that isn't over yet
