Tectonic setting

The Yogyakarta depression area is mostly covered by alluvium and the volcanic deposit of Mount Merapi. The Yogyakarta depression area is located between the volcanic arc of the Central Java and the Java Trench.[2]


The earthquake affected the Yogyakarta depression area in Central Java.[2] It caused about 213 deaths and over 3,900 injuries. More than 12,600 houses collapsed.[2][3] This earthquake caused damage in Central Java from Garut in the west to Surakarta in the east.[4] Alone in Bantul, there were 31 people dead, 564 people injured, and 2,682 houses collapsed.[5]
