The Soothsayer's Name is...

...BMG (The National Geophysics and Meteorology Board--or something like that).

On Wednesday (July 20th, 2006) night, the radio station Elshinta aired an emergency show about the recent earthquake which hit Banten. An expert from BMG (in English, it stands for The Board of Geophysics and Meteorology) called an on-site reporter.

Expert: Where are your current location?
Reporter: I'm at Karangmalang, about 2 km (from the shore).
Expert: Oh, so you didn't actually witness anything, then?
Reporter: Well, no, but the people around me are restless.
Expert: But of course! It's natural to panick. As a matter of fact, they have to!
