It is estimated that 4.91 Million people, 915,484 households, and $4.7 Billion (USD) of infrastructure* are concentrated within this radius. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available by official sources. Epicenter: Latitude: -6.4686, Longitude: 30.7664 *The cost represents the total replacement value of the infrastructure.
