Desa Tlogolele (Tlogolele Village)

Total people of Tlogolele village is 2522 people. Of 2427 people, about 251 people fled to family or relatives’ places and about 2176 people fled to three camps in Kecamatan Sawangan i.e. at the secondary school building of SMPN 1 Sawangan about 1000 people and the rest are at the Mosque in Tlatar and at Nglangon field. Yet, there are some people staying at the village to monitor the condition, they are some village officers and members of village emergency response team.

Food items and health, which are mostly met by the local government, for the displaced people at the evacuation sites are considered adequate. Yet, the people at SMPN 1 Sawangan stated to have lack of clean water for sanitation. We need to have further assessment to measure how far the needs are met.

There was rumor that caused restlessness among the displaced people spread. The rumor said that they will be moved to Kecamatan Cepogo and Kecamatan Ampel, still in Kabupaten Boyolali. This rumor caused many displaced people packed their stuffs and got ready to move.
