Carrera por hallar sobrevivientes tras el sismo en Java

By Jordi Bou

November 22, 2022 - Los rescatistas se apresuran para llegar hasta las personas que todavía están atrapadas bajo escombros tras el potente terremoto en Java que mató a cientos y ha dañado miles de hogares.

West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil confirmed 56 deaths from the quake, whose epicentre was the town of Cianjur, about 75 km southeast of the capital, Jakarta.

Indonesia straddles the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, a highly seismically active zone, where different plates on the earth's crust meet, causing earthquakes and volcanoes.

The country has a history of devastating earthquakes and tsunamis, with more than 2,000 killed in a 2018 Sulawesi quake.
