More earthquakes in Indonesia?

Will there be more? Unfortunately, eathquakes in Indonsia are nothing new.  Indonesia experiences more earthquakes than any other county in the world.*

In fact, according to the United States Geological Survey, Indonesia has suffered more than 150 earthquakes with a magnitude greater than 7 between the years 1901 to 2017.

Volcanoes are also a threat. In 1883, Krakatoa erupted causing seismic avtivity. Some 36,417 lives were lost from the eruption and the tsunami’s it created.

From the recent earthquake in Indonesia, and the aftershocks, the death toll has reached 430. Sadly, it may have risen as I write this.
