Preliminary calculations from the government provided on February 9th placed estimated damages in excess of Rp. 400 million (US$34,500).

Current reports from Buleleng put the damage at:

Village of Kubutambahan: 2 homes heavily damaged, 69 home with minor damage and 137 fishing platforms destroyed.

Village of Bungkulan: 7 homes heavily damaged and 43 home with minor damage.

A regency welfare official from Buleleng told the press that the worst damage took place on the eastern shores of the regency.
