BMKG later acknowledges that there is increased seismic activity

The Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) has recognized an increase in seismicity in recent months. According to the results of seismic monitoring, increased seismic activity in the Maluku Sea, south of Sumbawa and south of Bali.

This was reported after two earthquakes in southern Halmahera and Bali at the same time.

"Indeed, the results of seismic monitoring show that seismic activity has increased in recent months in the Maluku Sea, south of Sumbawa and south of Bali," said BMKG's Chief Information Officer on Earthquakes and tsunami early warning, Daryono, via a text. message received on Wednesday 17/7.

"However, the presence of seismic activities taking place at almost the same time and the adjacent location does not mean that the inter-earthquake is spreading and firing.Every source of earthquake is different and has its own activities," he said. he continued.

Daryono then explained that the South Halmahera earthquake had a magnitude of 7.2 due to an active fault activity, the Sorong Bacan Fault. While the earthquake in Bali was due to the deformation or fracture of the Australian plate that had been subducted on the Eurasian plate south of Bali.

"Earthquakes are a manifestation of the sudden release of energy from the accumulation of stress fields in rocks that have been going on for a very long time." If it is said to be active, then yes, then an earthquake will produce, "he explained.

When asked if there was a time limit for how long the increase in seismic activity occurred, Daryono said there was no specific time pattern.

As previously reported, an earthquake rocked southern Halmahera with a magnitude of 7.2 Sunday (7/14). The epicenter of the earthquake was about 135 kilometers southwest of Ternate (northern Maloukou Islands) or 0.51 north latitude and 126.18 east longitude, with a depth of 10 kilometers.

The BMKG has issued tsunami early warning status in a number of coastal areas in northern Sulawesi and northern Maluku.

Following the earthquake, BMKG also issued warnings about tsunami-prone areas, based on the modeling carried out.

Two days after the earthquake in southern Halmahera, on Tuesday, July 16, the earthquake of the community of the Nusa Dua region in Bali was shaken by a magnitude of 6. The earthquake of BMKG has indicated that the earthquake had occurred at point 9.11 114.54 east longitude with a depth of 68 kilometers.

A total of seven aftershocks occurred after the magnitude 6 SR earthquake that rocked the Jembrana Regency. The strength of the replicas is at most 3.2 SR and the smallest of 2.5 SR. According to BMKG modeling results, the mid-size earthquake in Bali did not have the potential for a tsunami.
