The earthquake also caused a tsunami warning to be issued, and those living in coastal areas were advised to move to higher ground as soon as possible. The warning, however, was eventually lifted after it was determined that there had been no strong waves observed.

Due to its location on the “Ring of Fire,” a region that is characterized by a high frequency of seismic and volcanic activity, Indonesia has a particularly high risk of being affected by earthquakes and other types of natural catastrophes. In recent years, the nation has been rocked by a number of severe earthquakes and tsunamis, including a calamitous earthquake that struck the island of Sulawesi in 2018 and resulted in the deaths of thousands of people.

The most recent earthquake has brought to light the persistent difficulties that Indonesia faces in coping with the effects of natural disasters, as well as the requirement for continual efforts to strengthen infrastructure and emergency preparedness.
