Cianjur, West Java ● Thu, November 24 2022
Survivors of the recent 5.6-magnitude earthquake in Cianjur, West Java, appealed for food and water on Wednesday, as heavy rain and aftershocks hampered rescue efforts among the rubble of devastated villages.
More than 61,000 people have been displaced by the quake and around 2,000 injured, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) said on Wednesday. The death toll, as of the same day, had risen to 271, and 40 people remained missing.
The calls for help came as authorities warned that debris from landslides caused by the strong earthquake needed to be cleared as rain forecast for the coming weeks threatened a second disaster, AFP reported.
