Crowded area of Indonesia hit by Earthquake on 10th of March 2020
This area of Indonesia is very crowded so lots of people have been affected. The Earthquake wasn’t too huge but it has done some vital damages to the areas that it hit.
Mostly it is Bogor which is near the epicenter of the earthquake with Jakarta in the north being a 10 million city must have felt a lot yesterday (today in Indonesia). Distrita has many helpers in this region and all of them have reported back that they are safe. Bandung was on the outskirts of the earthquake but they also felt it they say.
