According to the disaster agency, an earthquake rocked the Indonesian tourist island of Bali on Saturday (October 16), killing three people. The 4.8 magnitude quake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 kilometers northeast of Banjar Wanasari. Deep earthquakes do greater harm than little tremors.
Officials reported two individuals died after the tremor produced a landslide in Bangli regency, burying their house, while another person was killed in the port town of Karangasem. They noted that the death toll was not likely to climb.
“The tremor was felt intensely for five seconds,” said Abdul Muhari, a spokesperson for the disaster department. “When the earthquake struck, many panicked and fled their homes.”
The tremor’s epicenter was distant from Bali’s major tourist hub, which is slowly returning to international visitors following a yearlong closure. Due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of strong seismic activity where tectonic plates clash that spans from Japan to Southeast Asia and throughout the Pacific basin, Indonesia experiences numerous quakes.
