6.2 Earthquake in Yogyakarta, Indonesia This Morning

This morning May 27 at 5:54 AM local time in Java, Indonesia. Earthquake occured about 25 km SSW of YOGYAKARTA or about 440 km ESE of JAKARTA with Magnitude 6.2 according to USGS.

Casualities reported until now about 104 dead.

Yogyakarta is is known as a center of classical Javanese fine art and culture and the only province in Indonesia that is still formally governed by a precolonial Sultanate, the Sultanate of Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat.

It is also the home to Gajah Mada University, the biggest university in South East Asia.

Plenty of people from Yogyakarta lives in Jakarta and they all wondering about their family and friends there. Bloggers respond about the earthquake., Yogyakarta blogger community has a short post regarding the earthquake.

The earthquake was reported not a volcanic one from Mount Merapi an active volcano nearby, but came from underwater tectonic shear.

My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones and who are injured in this disaster.

Innalilahi …
