Danny added that acknowledged the existence of the megathrust plate on the southern, or Indian Ocean coast of Java and Sumatra that is expected to bring about the major earthquake and tsunami.
He pointed out that the recent earthquakes that hit East Java was not caused by the megathrust plates. “I am more concerned about a potential earthquake in [West Sumatra]. The earthquakes there are cause for concern, as the megathrust is located there,” Danny said.
Indonesia is located in the Ring of Fire, a part of the Indo-Pacific region that is vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters.
