Preliminary damage reports have emerged on 15 January 2021, following a 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck earlier in the day at 0228 local time (1828 UTC on 14 January) approximately 35 km (22 mi) south of Mamuju in West Sulawesi province. At least 34 people have been reported dead, more than 600 others have been injured, and more than 15,000 people have been displaced as a result of the earthquake. In addition, 62 homes and other structures — including the Hotel D’Maleo Mamuju and a medical center in Majene — sustained moderate to severe damage. Sporadic power disruptions and outages have been reported across portions of the impact area, and authorities have not indicated when services will be restored. Meanwhile, at least three landslides have blocked portions of the Majene-Mamuju roadway, which runs along the western coast, complicating rescue and recovery efforts, which remain ongoing. Officials stated that the number of casualties and damaged structures may increase as authorities continue relief efforts.
