Since the death toll is rising so quickly, I've used a more general toll in the title to hopefully reduce the number of renamings. Iorek 07:14, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

The time was about 05:54 in the morning local time on th 27th of May 2006.[1]. Doldrums 08:24, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Image[edit]

I think it's important to show a better image than just the location of Java on a globe map. I've done a very quick edit of this to create this:

Indonesian earthquake.png

but I'd happily see it replaces with a better produced, similar picture. Here's a BBC picture for comparison. Frankie Roberto 11:38, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Central Java? Misleading?[edit]

"Central Java" is the name of a province, while most casualties are from Bantul which is in the province of "Yogyakarta".

Well spotted. I've moved the article to Earthquake kills thousands in Indonesia. Frankie Roberto 21:56, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
