BMKG data indicated that 11,577 earthquakes, of varying depths and depths, struck in 2018, while 7,172 earthquakes were recorded in 2017.
This indicates that Indonesia witnessed a marked increase in the number of tectonic earthquakes in 2018.
Many of the earthquake-related events that struck Indonesia in 2018, including liquefaction in Palo, a tsunami struck before a tsunami warning was issued in Palo, and the Sunda Strait, the tsunami, first occurred.
In 2004, Indonesia also bore the brunt of a major catastrophe that claimed hundreds of thousands lives in Banda Aceh and affected several other parts of Aceh province after the region was rocked by a deadly tsunami after a strong earthquake.
