6 October 2022 09:20 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Medan -  The Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) recorded at least 119 aftershocks as of Wednesday morning, October 5, 2022, after the 5.8-magnitude earthquake hit Tarutung and its vicinity areas, North Tapanuli Regency of North Sumatra, in the early hours of last Saturday, October 1. 

The aftershocks were dominated by small magnitudes, yet 15 of them could be felt. Of the figure, five aftershocks were monitored throughout Monday at an intensity of II-III MMI scale.

The agency’s deputy for geophysics, Suko Prayitno Adi, reported the data on Wednesday. The agency also attempted to conduct a macroseismic survey to map the possible impacts caused by the quake’s side effects.

The survey is carried out in collaboration with a team from the BMKG, Regional I MKG Center (PGR 1), BMKG Geophysics Tuntungan (TSI), BMKG Geophysics Padang Panjang (PPI), and the Silangit Meteorological Station.

The North Tapanuli Resort Police in tandem with the North Sumatra Police also carried out trauma healing events for residents affected by the M5.8 earthquake in Huta Tinggi Village, Parmonangan District. Some of them were reportedly traumatized when entering their own homes. “Children also suffer trauma,” said North Tapanuli Police Chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Johanson Sianturi in a written statement as quoted from Antara.
