BHA Press Release: Sumatra Earthquake

BHA Press Release: Sumatra Earthquake

In the afternoon of Wednesday April 11, 2012 a 8.5 Richter scale earthquake occurred southwest of Simeuleu district in the Indonesian province of Aceh – over 2500 km to the Northwest of Bali. The depth of the earthquake was shallow, estimates range from 10 km to 30 km.  The earthquake triggered widespread tsunami warnings for the Western Sumatran Coast as well as the wider region. Fortunately no damaging waves have been generated. The earthquake was followed by several severe aftershocks.
BHA would like to convey its regrets and compassionate thoughts to those affected by this unfortunate event.
Bali was at no time endangered or disturbed by the quake. The islands holiday life and business activities commenced as usual. There were no reports of panic from any of BHA’s 104 star rated hotels.
Bali Hotels Association [BHA] members are connected to several tsunami early warning and earthquake information services. The association constantly trains its hotels for earthquake and tsunami events. Many BHA hotels are ‘Tsunami Ready’ certified.
The association ensures its guests and partners that it is monitoring the situation and will react timely and professionally to any threat.
