BMKG chief Dwikorita Karnawati said Friday’s quake was shallow, given the depth of its epicenter. She added that it was a tectonic earthquake, unlike the earthquake and tsunami in December 2018, which was caused by the eruption of the Anak Krakatau volcano in the Sunda Strait.

She said that people in earthquake-affected areas should remain calm, try not to be affected by rumors related to the earthquake, and get their information from verified channels of BMKG.

She added that they should avoid earthquake-affected buildings and ensure that their homes or offices are not damaged before returning to them.

“We must also prepare our homes in the event of an earthquake by preparing unobstructed evacuation routes or strong indoor shelter such as sturdy wooden offices on the second floor [and up]Dokorita said.

She said outdoor evacuation points should be in an open area away from buildings that could fall or collapse.
