Three dead after strong quake hits Indonesian island of Lombok

05 August 2018

The powerful natural disaster rocked Indonesia's Lombok on Sunday, sending people running from their homes and triggering a tsunami alert, just a week after a quake killed 17 people on the holiday island.

The quake struck at a depth of 10.5 kilometers off the north coast of Lombok, a little over a mile from Loloan village, the USGS said.

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency for Indonesia had reported scores of aftershocks in the hours last week's quake and had warned that another major quake could be imminent.

The tremor came a week after a shallow 6.4-magnitude quake hit Lombok, killing 17 people and damaging hundreds of buildings.

They said: "oh my god", "Bali".

The 6.9-magnitude natural disaster left at least three people dead a week after a 6.4 quake in the same region killed more than a dozen people. We are on stilts.

The Thai embassy in Jarkata said on its Facebook account that there have been no reports of Thais being injured in the quake. It felt like a ride.

Teigen also happened to be in a bit of a compromising situation when it hit: undressed, which is how she feels comfortable when breastfeeding her baby.

The quake was felt for several seconds in Bali, where people ran out of houses, hotels and restaurants.

Lombok and Bali are famed for their pristine beaches and mountains, with local planning restrictions in both locations being prohibited from exceeding the height of coconut trees.
