0 18,583

The death toll from the earthquake that hit Indonesia last week has risen to 91.

 

The natural disasters in the province of West Sulawesi have injured at least 1,100 people, 253 of which are still in serious condition, according to authorities. Three people are also missing.

The magnitude 6.2 earthquake caused extensive damage to homes, hotels, hospitals, and other buildings last Friday. Dozens of aftershocks followed.

President Joko Widodo paid a visit to the area’s hard-hit capital, Mamuju, earlier this week. He promised there that collapsed buildings would be restored.

Since the beginning of the year, 166 people have been killed by natural disasters in Indonesia, says a spokesman for the emergency response service.

This happened, among other things, during floods, landslides and storms.
