(1/5/2004)

An earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale shook much of Bali and Lombok at 5 a.m. local time on Friday, January 2, 2004.

The epicenter of the quake was located some 27 miles northeast of Karangasem at an estimated depth of 33 kilometers.

The quake roused many people from their sleep across the entire breadth of the island of Bali and in neighboring Lombok.

Property Damage and Injuries Reported

The Indonesian-language Bali Post has reported that thousands of homes suffered some damage as the result of the tremor and at least 33 people were injured in Bali and Lombok. Damage estimates on Bali are put at Rp. 23 billion (approximately US$ 2.7 million) and were confined to damage to homes, schools and health centers in East Bali. Heavier structural damage was reported in West Lombok where several buildings, including a Mosque and several homes, collapsed completely and where one death is attributed to the quake.

On Bali, substantial damage was reported in the traditional Bali Aga village of Tenganan and in the villages of Culik and Seraya.

According to reports from the Department of Meteorology and Geophysics (BMG), this was the largest quake in the Karangasem area since 1979.
