Indonesia is not only known as an archipelago that is rich innatural resources but also known as a disaster-prone country. Because ofits location in four major Eurasian, Indo-Australian, Pacific, and Philippinetectonic plates, natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, landslides, volcanic eruptions, droughts, forest fires, and tsunamis often occurthroughout the region. In 2006, a large earthquake shocked the denselypopulated Yogyakarta Province and its surrounding areas. This earthquakecaused huge fatalities and damaged thousands of buildings andinfrastructures. The Pacitan region is geographically close to Yogyakarta, and is located only 120 km from the epicenter of the quake. Therefore, awareness of disaster mitigation is a critical action in reducing disasterrisks. In addition, the Pacitan Regency is a hilly and mountainous regioncovering a total area of 1,389.87 km. Its territory also includes karstregions and lowland areas. A preliminary research utilizing the HAZUSmethod was conducted for assessing the damage probability of residentialhouses at an earthquake-prone area of Pacitan sub-district. The indicativeresults show that the unreinforced masonry (URML) types are the mostdestructive followed by Wood, light frame (W1), reinforced masonry lowrise(RM2L), and reinforced masonry mid-rise (RM2M) when appliedacross three scenarios of earthquake with magnitudes of 6, 6.5, and 7, respectively.
