Indonesia issues tsunami warning after 7.0 natural disaster hits Bali

A second earthquake has hit Lombok one week after the first struck the popular destination island

A spokesman for Indonesia's National Disaster Management Board issued a statement that said the quake was felt in Mataran, Lombok's capital, as well as Sumbawa Island, to the east of Lombok, the New York Times reported.

At least 91 people are dead and hundreds more injured as a magnitude 7.0 quake rocked Indonesia's popular tourist island of Lombok on Sunday, according to Indonesian authorities and the U.S. Geological Survey.

"Hopefully, now, with the arrival of heavy equipment, we can get her remains back", said Husni, another family member.

Search and rescue operation is underway. Amid collapsed houses, some hotels appeared to have closed, restaurants were empty and beaches deserted.

"This is an uncertain time for the people of Lombok and Indonesia - as well as those travelling there", White says.

Singapore's Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam was in Lombok for a security conference when the quake struck.

"Bali. Trembling. So long", Teigen tweeted to her 10.6 million followers.

Lombok is a popular tourist destination east of Bali. A brief tsunami warning went into effect but was later lifted.

"This quake was certainly felt in Bali, buildings in Kuta were even damaged".

A woman was pulled alive on Tuesday from under a grocery store that fell apart in the rural north of the tropical holiday island, near the epicenter of Sunday's quake.


"The main focus at this time is the search, rescue and assistance to people affected by the natural disaster and fulfillment of basic needs".

Visitors and locals in Bali and Lombok are in a state of panic after a 7.1 quake and following strong aftershocks hit the resort islands Sunday night.

According to a tweet by ANI, reports quoted the US Geological Survey (USGS) saying that the quake hit the Lombok island- a famous island in Indonesia.

Lombok was hit on July 29 by a 6.4 magnitude quake that killed 17 people and briefly stranded several hundred trekkers on the slopes of a volcano.

"I am crying. he did not even flinch, even though it is allowed to leave your prayer during an natural disaster", said Indonesian cleric Yusuf Mansur, who shared the clip to his two millions followers on Instagram.

Dwikorita Karnawati, head of Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, told MetroTV that the tsunami warning has ended.

Ms Karnawati added that small waves just 15cm (6 inches) high had been reported in three villages.

"People panicked and scattered on the streets, and buildings and houses that had been damaged by the previous natural disaster had become more damaged and collapsed", Mr Nugroho said.

Debris littered the streets of Lombok and Bali, which local people sought to clean up in the hours after the quake.
