“Regarding distribution logistics, it improves every day. As for the tents, little by little we will incorporate assistance and distribution personnel”, explained Muhari.
The agency registers some 73,874 people with no place to live, since an estimated 62,628 are the number of homes partially or totally damaged by the earthquake.
The 5.6-magnitude, shallow earthquake wreaked severe havoc in West Java, Indonesia’s main and most populous island, with around 50 million inhabitants and a rather fragile housing stock.
That country, located in the so-called Pacific ring of fire, is a recurring target of the effects of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
By the way, experts recall the magnitude 9.1 earthquake that in 2004 caused a devastating tsunami throughout that geographical area and left 220,000 dead, 170,000 of them Indonesian.
