Today I’m very busy trying to solve a database-related problem and failed to check my emails and/or watch the news.
When I finally checked my emails later, I was very surprised to read Eko Juniarto’s email – there was a big earthquake this morning in Yogya (Java island, Indonesia), and two of his relatives died in the event.
Tried to check Angkringan, Yogyakarta’s blogger-community website. So far only 1 post made its way there. I did read though that communication infrastructure was heavily damaged in the earthquake, so this is expected. I tried calling Thomas Arie, but kept on getting busy signals. I hope he came through that alright.
I then checked on my relatives in Solo, and they said they’re ok, the earthquake was barely felt over there.
My condolences to the victims and their relatives. Hopefully, people will be able to work together on this disaster, and it will bring the best to all of us.
