At least, 46 people have been killed and 700 injured in an earthquake that rattled Indonesia’s main island of Java on Monday, a local official from the town worst hit by the tremor told local media.

“The latest data, 46 people were killed. Victims kept coming from many areas. Around 700 people were injured,” Herman Suherman, the head of the administration in Cianjur town in West Java, told broadcaster Kompas TV, Agence France-Presse gathered.

Sky News also reported many were hurt as they were hit by collapsed buildings, according to the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, adding that some areas were cut off.

The earthquake hit in the Cianjur region in West Java province at a depth of 6.2 miles, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Several landslides were reported around Cianjur and dozens of buildings were damaged, including an Islamic boarding school, a hospital and other public facilities.

Residents in the capital city of Jakarta fled into the streets for safety.

Earthquakes occur frequently across the sprawling archipelago nation of more than 270 million people, but it is uncommon for them to be felt in Jakarta.
