Associated with the occurrence of seismic activity" Triplet", which is 3 strong earthquakes occurring in adjacent locations with almost identical forces, in Mindanao, southern Philippines, the Weather Agency for Weather and Geophysics (BMKG), through the press release, remember that similar earthquakes can occur in Indonesian territory.

The sequence of the Mindanao earthquake and some of the seismic activities in the Indonesian region of recent years, such as the earthquakes in Lombok from July to August 2018, the Palu earthquake on 28 September 2018, and the Ambon earthquake on 26 September 2019 , were of the destructive type.

While in Indonesia there are at least 13 areas of segmented tectonic plate impacts, there are more than 295 active segmentation for failures that need to be monitored, so a higher alertness of seismic potential is essential, especially for people who are around active faults.

Because the source of this active fault earthquake becomes a threat to the community because of its location, because they are on the continent which is where people live.

Here is a list of possible seismic hotspots in Indonesia where seismic activity should be alertduring October 2019: Mentawai-Nias, Bengkulu, South Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumba, Ambon-Seram, Maluku Sea and Papua Mamber.
