Another Powerful Quake Hits Lombok and Bali; No Tsunami Warning

Another Powerful Quake Hits Lombok and Bali; No Tsunami Warning

Rescue team members prepare to find people trapped inside a mosque after an natural disaster hit on Sunday in Pemenang, Lombok Island, Indonesia, on August 8, 2018.

Indonesia's geological agency said the quake was shallow, at a depth of 12km, centred in the northeast of the island.

Aid began reaching isolated areas of the Indonesian island struggling after a powerful natural disaster, while rescuers doubled down on efforts to find the dead, pulling another body from the rubble.

Many people used the word "selamat" - meaning "to survive" - as they wrote about the magnitude 7.0 quake, which, CBS reports, killed at least 131 people. The United States Geological Survey measured the quake at 5.9.

Videos showed rubble strewn across the streets and clouds of dust enveloping buildings.

Indonesia's chief security minister Wiranto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, said the latest figures before the third quake suggested 319 people had died.

This is the terrifying moment a shaking building suddenly collapses in Lombok after the Indonesian island was rocked by its third major natural disaster in just 12 days.

There are fears that a humanitarian crisis is looming as thousands are in desperate need of clean water, food, medicine and shelter.

Many frightened, displaced villagers are staying under tents or tarpaulins dotted along roads or in parched rice fields, and makeshift medical facilities have been set up to treat the injured.

Many buildings still standing on the island have been weakened. Some villages have collapsed entirely.

The island was still recovering after two other recent earthquakes when the tremor happened. "The grandson tried to help the grandmother to get out but he pushed too hard", she said.

Indonesia is prone to earthquakes as it is situated in the "Ring of Fire", an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many tremors and volcanic eruptions occur.

He says, "People are always saying they need water and tarps". More than 1,000 schools have been damaged, the organization said.

Tens of thousands of people have been left homeless on the island. "Overnight the children are cold, they don't have blankets or proper clothing to keep warm", said Hana Yulia, an emergency response worker from the group now in Lombok.
