TRIBUNBATAM.id - The Department of National Disaster Management (BNPB) noted that at least 135,875 people were displaced by the earthquake that shook Ambon on 26 September 2019 ago.

The Head of the BNPB Data, Information and Public Relations Center, Agus Wibowo said the refugee data was an update until Saturday (10/5/2019). The day before, the number of refugees was only 111 thousand.

The increase in the number of refugees, especially in the West Seram District (SBB) is due to a number of factors. Starting from the aftershocks that are still felt by residents, until there is false news.
