Another Earthquake Strike Indonesia
October 16, 2009 8:08am CST
Today, at 04:55 PM, West Indonesian Time, an earthquake happened, it centered in Ujung Kulon. It shoch reach even Jakarta, The Indonesian Capital. I actually live in Jakarta, and when the earthquake strike, my friend panic and then start yelling " it's a earthquake" and then they all run for exit. Me, although i don't feel the shock at all ( i don't feel the 3 minutes earthquake that also happened in Jakarta about a month ago ) follow them and then run to exit. The question is, do you feel the shock when earthquake happened. And what did you do then? Also can you tell me any news about what happened in ujung kulon, because in jakarta, the damage doesn't seem big. But still, knowing almost every week an earthquake is happened in our country is really are scary.

Although the scale isn't quite big, here in North Celebes many earthquakes has happened, in this month it's around 8 times of earthquakes. That's what I heard so far from BMKG. I only sense it about 2 times shake. I've fallen to hurt because of earthquake that happened here in North Celebes 2 years ago, I'm not a panic person but I'm kinda trauma with earthquakes. So I really concern and be cautions about this.

Yes, the best thing to do when a disaster like earthquake is happening is not to be panic. But for me, it is easy to say hard to do. Especially if you watch television too much about the news in padang. It really make me remember them again and again and it make me panic. But thanks for your information.

I do not know whether to panic or not, if the earthquake happened. during the earthquake in Yogyakarta I did not panic, but after knowing many of the victims, I became frantic. I do not want to experience again. I hope if there is an earthquake, do not cause damage and casualties are many. I have not heard the news about the Ujung kulon, whether the earthquake caused much damage occurred or not. hopefully not too bad.

My mother was upstairs felt the earthquake shake, and I myself did not realize there was an earthquake because I'm in the first floor. The earthquake was smaller than before and around 6.4 SR -- Occurs in Serang, Banten. When this happens a lot of people panicked for fear of a sudden onset of events such as the Padang. We can not guess, because which we experience much closer.

Yes, when thing like this happened. Most of us actually panic. I too panic and run off the building without taking anything, at that time i just care for my life. I leave my cellphone, my external harddisk, my wallet, my company data and document. I don't care about them i just run as fast as i can. Thanks
