Fire-following earthquake risk of Jakarta

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Fire-following earthquake (FFE) phenomenon has been observed in Indonesia, but it has not received much attention. This study is an attempt to address the FFE risk for Jakarta, the largest city in Indonesia; Jakarta faces both earthquake and fire hazards and is vulnerable to both hazards. The score-based risk analysis is conducted using readily available and easy-to-update data to provide an initial FFE risk for each urban village. The risk analysis algorithm is described in detail. The FFE risk appears to be the higher for urban villages in the northern part of Jakarta, and decreases for those in the southern part.
