Preliminary calculations from the government provided on February 9th placed estimated damages in excess of Rp. 400 million (US$34,500).

Current reports from Buleleng put the damage at:

Village of Kubutambahan: 2 homes heavily damaged, 69 home with minor damage and 137 fishing platforms destroyed.
