Earthquake 7.6 Richter Scale hit the West Sumatra, Indonesia on September 30, 2009 at approximately 17:16 WIB. The West Sumatra earthquake has resulted in 1,117 people being killed and 1,214 people being seriously injured.
The search for survivors among the ruins of permanent buildings, as well as the process of evacuating victims that puts humanity first (e.g. intact bodies evacuated) as happened in the extraordinary scale of the disaster in Padang are benchmarks for the ability of Indonesian Search and Rescue National team (Basarnas) personnel to face the challenges ahead.
