Head of Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) Dwikorita Karnawati reminded the public about the threat of an earthquake and tsunami along the island of Java, especially in Cilacap Regency.

This was explained by the Head of BMKG when opening an earthquake field school (SLG) in Cilacap, Central Java on Wednesday (27/7). She also explained that this is because Cilacap itself is located on the southern coast of Java facing the plate collision zone, between the Indian Ocean plate and the Eurasian plate, making Cilacap at risk of being hit by a tsunami.

She also asked the local government and residents to continue to prepare for the worst scenario, because according to the tsunami modeling results with the worst scenario, there is the potential for a tsunami with a height of more than 10 meters on the coast of Cilacap as a result of an earthquake with a magnitude of 8,7 M. She added that this is not just a prediction, but is the result of studies and seismic experts
