      35 dead as powerful earthquake rocks Java

      TOM ALLARD, JAKARTA

      September 3, 2009

       

      Indonesian quake deaths soar

      Indonesia's latest earthquake claims dozens of lives with up to 500 injured as buildings in downtown Jakarta sway wildly.
      A POWERFUL earthquake rocked Indonesia 's densely populated island of Java yesterday, causing homes and buildings to collapse and prompting fears of significant casualties.
      At least 35 people were killed and 422 injured when the powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck.
      Disaster management agency spokesman Priyadi Kardono said many of the dead were trapped under their houses.

      Last night said 10 people were killed in Cianjur, eight in Tasikmalaya, three in Garut, one in Sukabumi and one in West Bandung .
      Another 5000 people fled their homes fearing aftershocks in Cianjur, he said."The houses of some of those who died in Cianjur were buried under a landslide,'' Mr Kardono said.The quake struck less than 200 kilometres south of Jakarta at a depth of 49 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said.People fled shopping centres and office towers in Jakarta as buildings shook for at least a minute about 3pm.
      Officials said dozens of houses and commercial buildings had collapsed in the worst-hit areas around the towns of Tasikmalaya and Sukabumi.
      Fears of a tsunami prompted residents to flee for the hills near the village of Cikelet, local police chief Ricard Laute said.''The people really panicked,'' he said.While a tsunami warning was issued as the epicentre of the quake was off the coast of south Java and at a depth of 66 kilometres, it was withdrawn less than half an hour later.
      Registering 7.0 on the Richter scale, the earthquake occurred more than 200 kilometres from Jakarta but was strong enough to cause office blocks to sway and windows to shatter in the capital, prompting a mass evacua tio n of nervous office workers.
      From Tasikamalaya, the town closest to the epicentre, to the cultural hub of Yogyakarta, the university town of Bandung and right up to the outskirts of the Indonesian capital, there were reports of substantial damage to buildings, including lecture halls, mosques and government offices.
      Indonesia's sprawling archipelago of some 17,000 islands - known as the rim of fire - is one of the world's most tectonically active regions.Not far from the epicentre of yesterday's quake, a larger earthquake in 2006 caused the loss of more than 700 lives.
      In 2004, an 9.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Sumatra led to a tsunami that resulted in more than 200,000 deaths.Since then, Indonesia has experienced 29 earthquakes that have registered 6.3 on the Richter scale or higher.

        Indonesia's sprawling archipelago of some 17,000 islands - known as the rim of fire - is one of the world's most tectonically active regions.Not far from the epicentre of yesterday's quake, a larger earthquake in 2006 caused the loss of more than 700 lives.
        In 2004, an 9.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Sumatra led to a tsunami that resulted in more than 200,000 deaths.Since then, Indonesia has experienced 29 earthquakes that have registered 6.3 on the Richter scale or higher.
