With regard to missing victims, the BNPB operates an emergency response command post. This command post will be focused on the search and evacuation of victims.
It is very likely that the data on victims will increase considering that the search is still being carried out.
Meanwhile, there were 58,362 people who found themselves displaced in various areas in and around Cianjur Regency. Also, according to the BNPB, there are currently 22,198 houses with severe, moderate or light damage.
