The Regency of Tabanan in Bali is undertaking preparedness steps in the event of a tsunami striking the iconic Tanah Lot Temple area on the Island’s West Coast. 

 
As reported by The Jakarta Post, the secretary of the Tabanan regency, Nyoman Wirna Ariwangsa, told the press that the 35-kilometer-long beach front of the regency is vulnerable to natural disasters such as tsunami. 
 
Said Ariwangsa: “Local residents and visitors must be equipped with accurate information on the evacuation process and any possible disaster that may hit the area.” 
 
The head of the Tabanan Disaster Mitigation and Prevention Agency (BPBD), Gusti Ngurah Sucita, described precautions, saying: “When a tsunami occurs, the most critical area is Tanah Lot. But we plan to build a tsunami shelter center in the western area of Tabanan, up toward Selabih village.”
 
An evacuation map had been formulated for hotels and residents along the exposed coast that will be shared with villagers to help save life should a tsunami occur.
 
Attending the initial meeting to launch the evacuation scenario were managers of Tanah Lot, community leaders, village officials and management from the Pan Pacific Bali Nirwana Resort.
 
Signs showing evacuation routes have also been installed up and down the coast.
 
The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) have identified the southern regions of Bali as one of three main places in Indonesia at greatest risk of earthquake and tsunami damage.
