Indonesia Raises Lombok Island Earthquake Toll to 460
After the massive earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok, 460 dead have already been counted.
The national disaster management agency BNPB says, the damage is estimated at 440 million euros, according to Wednesday.
Approximately 7,800 people were injured, and more than 417,000 people lost their homes or homes, according to spokesman Sutopo Nugroho.
The earthquake with a magnitude of 6.9 on the Richter scale occurred on 5 August. The search for further victims is made more difficult by aftershocks. There is a fear that the death toll will rise further.
Indonesia has resided on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, which is recognised for its frequent earthquakes and volcanic explosions. There are around 130 active volcanoes in the countryside.
