Indonesia is located in a seismically active region, and it is prone to earthquakes due to its location on the “Ring of Fire,” a zone of tectonic activity around the Pacific Ocean.

Earthquakes in Indonesia can be caused by the movement of the Indo-Australian Plate and the Eurasian Plate, which are both converging on the island of Sumatra.

Indonesia has a long history of earthquakes, and many parts of the country have experienced significant earthquake activity. Some of the most destructive earthquakes in Indonesia have occurred in Sumatra, including the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami and the 2010 Mentawai earthquake and tsunami.

These events caused widespread damage and loss of life, and they highlighted the importance of being prepared for earthquakes in Indonesia.
