About the South Malang Earthquake

The M6.1 earthquake in South Malang, which killed 10 people and injured hundreds of people and caused a lot of damage to buildings, turned out to be not the first earthquake but it had been repeated.

Head of the Badan Meterorologi dan Geofisika (BMKG) Malang Karangkates Station, Musripan revealed a number of events that had occurred.

An earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale occurred on November 20, 1958. The earthquake was felt up to VIII MMI. It should be noted, the MMI VIII intensity scale causes minor damage to buildings with strong construction.

Then, an earthquake measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale occurred on February 19, 1967. This incident damaged 1,900 houses. The worst condition occurred in Dampit District. The strength of this earthquake was felt in Banyumas, Central Java.

The earthquake that caused quite a lot of casualties occurred in the southern route, to be precise in Blitar and Trenggalek. The incident took place on October 4, 1972. The magnitude of the 6 magnitude earthquake caused 250 people to die.

The earthquake was also felt by Malang Regency
