Twenty-three-year-old Priscilla Maharani recalled how terrifying it was when she woke up to a powerful earthquake one morning in Sleman, Yogyakarta. She was 8 at the time.
“I remember that I was trapped inside my room because I was too scared to move or do anything at all. I was so young back then, and the memory of being unable to do anything amid the quake is so scary,” Priscilla said.
