West Java (Jabar) Governor M Ridwan Kamil asked the public to be careful and alert to misinfiormation, disinformation and misleading hoaxes. For example, with the distribution of videos of earthquake events in Cianjur but labeled as Garut earthquakes. "The public should be wise in responding to the amount of hoax information that labels the incident of the Cianjur earthquake with the Garut earthquake," said Governor Ridwan Kamil in a written statement received in Bandung, Antara, Sunday, December 4. Governor Ridwan Kamil stated that the 6.1 magnitude earthquake in Garut Regency on Saturday, December 3 afternoon did not cause any casualties. It was reported that two people who suffered minor injuries and had received treatment from local health center officers. The damage caused by the earthquake was reported not too severe. Governor Ridwan Kamil stated that he had received a report from the Garut Regency Government, and the contents of the report seemed to have nothing to worry about. Based on Public Relations data from the Garut Regency Government, based on a report from the Garut District Health Office, the number of residents affected by the earthquake was 15 people from 6 families in Pakenjeng, Cikelet, Selaawi, and Cisewu Districts. The Garut Regency Health Office and BPBD have recorded several damaged houses, namely in Ciroyom Village (Cikelet) one house, Central Lembur Village (Selaawi) one house, Sukajaya Village Village Village (Cisewu) one house, and Jatiwangi Village (Pakenjeng) one elementary school building moderately damaged. Rescue workers have also established refugee camps and emergency posts. However, the Health Office together with BPBD Garut continue to carry out monitoring and services needed to the location. Garut Regent Rudy Gunawan said the earthquake had caused a tremendous panic among its citizens. Moreover, the earthquake occurred when the southern part of Garut was being hit by heavy rains, and the image of the Cianjur earthquake was still not lost. But Rudy is grateful that no one died. As a quick step, the Regent has ordered all regional apparatus to monitor the situation in 42 sub-districts in Garut. In the Garut Regent's Order Number: KP.11.01/497/TAPEM, monitoring results must be reported to the Garut BPBD call center. In this warrant, the location of the assignment of regional apparatus is divided into three assignment areas, namely the north, central and south areas. According to the Regent, the Garut Regency Government has provided ambulances at 67 health centers for emergency situations. Currently Garut is still in a state of alert. "There are concerns about aftershocks, for fear of cases (of) our brothers and sisters in Cianjur, especially now in some areas in heavy rains," he said. An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 occurred Saturday (3/12) at around 17.00 at a sea depth 118 kilometers from Sayang Heulang Beach, southern Garut. The BKMG stated that the earthquake had no potential for a tsunami.
