On May 27th, 2006, an earthquake struck just off the coast of Central Java. The scale of the disaster was far greater than first thought.

The regencies of Bantul and Klaten were the most affected. The immediate death toll was 5,778 while the number of people seriously injured was 37,883.

The number of homes damaged or destroyed was over 610,551. At least 1,173,742 people, and possibly as many as 1,542,380, were made homeless by the earthquake. The total number of schools destroyed or badly damaged was 2,912.
