TEMPO.CO, JakartaMore than 70 residents’ houses in Southwest Maluku of Maluku Province were damaged following the 7.5-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday, January 11, at 00:47:34 western Indonesian time (WIB), according to data from the operation control center of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency’s (BNPB).

“The Southwest Maluku Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) recorded a total of 73 damaged houses in its area. Of these, 29 houses were heavily damaged and 44 were lightly damaged. Public buildings such as two schools and a church were also lightly damaged,” said the acting head of the BNPB’s Disaster Data, Information, and Communication Center (Pusdalops), Abdul Muhari, on Tuesday.

Additionally, five people suffered injuries. Until the report was received by the Pusdalops BNPB, there were no reports of residents evacuated. The affected areas in Southwest Maluku Regency, among others, are in the districts of Dawelor Dawera, Leti, and Damer.
