… the millennium earthquake

The Pacific Ring of Fire is a volcanic belt, which rings the Pacific Ocean on three sides for a length of over 40,000 km. The friction of the tectonic plates makes this region a zone of frequent earthquakes, which in recent past have caused large numbers of buildings to collapse and this is a permanent threat for the people living in these regions. Indonesia with its population of more than 250 inhabitants and millions of tourists, who come to visit each year, is one of the most severely affected countries in this region.
