At least 6 people have been killed after a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck the East Java Province of Indonesia on Saturday morning, according to Indonesian media.
Dozens of homes have been damaged across the region, and rescuers have retrieved two bodies from the rubble of collapsed homes in the district’s Kali Uling village, according to domestic authorities.
Meanwhile, two people were also confirmed to have been killed in an area bordering Lumajang and Malang residences, and one Indonesian was found dead under rubble in Malang.
However, these numbers of causalities are expected to increase as assessments continue.
In the same context, the Indonesian Red Cross and non-governmental organizations are also mobilizing to aid and help survivors.
Lately, Indonesia’s search and rescue agency has released videos and photos of damaged houses and buildings, including a ceiling at a hospital in Blitar, a city neighboring Malang.
