The damage and losses caused by last week’s 7.0-magnitude earthquake in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), and Bali have been estimated to reach more than US$138 million, according to Indonesia’s national disaster agency.

 

The Jakarta Post quoted the spokesman of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) as reporting that damaged infrastructure comprises 67,875 houses, 468 schools, six bridges, three hospitals, 10 health centers, 15 mosques, 50 mushola (prayer room) and 20 office buildings.

 

“The BNPB is still estimating the economic losses,” spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho was quoted as saying.

Of MUCH lesser importance than the MONEY,  is of course the death toll, which currently stands at 387 human beings

My thoughts entirely.

 

This is indeed a sad reflection of the world we live in.

I have friends who live there and fortunately they and their families are safe but all living outside in tents, the poor are particularly hard hit as they have no work no money and no possessions, tragic.
