Earthquake affected people in Sigi Regency, Central Sulawesi, need immediate food and drink assistance. At present the residents survive in makeshift emergency tents.
"From the Sigi region. The food is not there, it runs out, we just need to eat bananas and sweet potatoes," said a resident of Sidera Village, Sigi Biromaru District, Sigi Regency, when a photo reporter was met between Muhammad Adimaja at the Public Gas Station in the City Palu, Monday (1/10).
According to him there was absolutely no assistance going into Sigi since the disaster occurred on Friday (28/9). He claimed to have come to Palu to find fuel because in Sigi it was no longer available.
After an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter Scale (SR) with the epicenter in northeast Donggala on Friday (28/9) which triggered a tsunami on the coast of Palu and Donggala, many aftershocks occurred and some were centered in Sigi.
Head of the Central PMI Disaster Management Division Arifin M Hadi said based on information from the PMI team that had been in the field since Monday (1/10) Sigi's condition was very severe and isolated. In addition to almost all buildings collapsing, part of the area is still muddy, especially in Jonooge Langlesa Village, making it difficult for the team to evacuate.
"The most difficult difficulty in this location is to travel with the mudfield in the process of evacuation of victims," Arifin said.
