Indonesia Struck by 2nd Massive Earthquake in a Week

Indonesia Struck by 2nd Massive Earthquake in a Week

A July 29 quake killed 16 people and damaged hundreds of houses, some of which collapsed in Sunday evening's magnitude 7.0 temblor, killing those inside.

A person evacuated to the parking lot outside the Mataram City hospital with other patients, following a strong quake, is seen in Mataram, Lombok island, Indonesia August 5, 2018 in this photo taken by Antara Foto.

More than 200 people were seriously injured.

"People were screaming and shouting that a tsunami was coming", he said.

It killed 17 people, destroyed or damaged 4500 houses and 31 schools, affecting around 50,000 Lombok residents.

The death toll in a powerful quake that hit West Nausa Tenggara and Bali, Indonesia on Sunday evening has climbed to 91, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) announced in a press conference in Jakarta on Monday.

Water, which has been in short supply due to a prolonged dry spell on the island, as well as food and medical supplies were being distributed from trucks.

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency placed Sunday's death toll at 82, more than doubling its earlier figure of 32.

TRT World speaks with journalist Kanupriya Kapoor, who is reporting from Lombok, on how some locals in the affected areas are having to fend for themselves.

Search and rescue operation is underway.

Lack of heavy equipment was hampering attempts to find victims beneath the rubble of a mosque that collapsed in northern Lombok while villagers prayed inside, Mr Nugroho said.

Debris is seen at a shop in Denpasar on Bali on Monday August 6 after it was damaged in an earthquake that struck Lombok the previous evening. The 6.9 magnitude tremor also triggered panic among tourists and locals on the neighbouring island of Bali. Pho

The United States Geological Survey slightly downgraded Sunday's quake after initially calling it 7.0-magnitude.

He further said that around 2000 people have been displaced following the destruction caused by the calamity. It was also felt on Bali to the west.

Today a second strong quake, measuring 5.2, hit the island region, hampering rebuilding and evacuation efforts.

Hundreds of people have been taken to local hospitals and thousands of homes have been damaged, said Arifin Muhammad Hadi, head of disaster management of the Indonesian Red Cross Society. "A lot of officials were urging people not to panic". On Lombok, soldiers and other rescuers carried injured people on stretchers and carpets to an evacuation centre.

BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said emergency units in its hospitals were overflowing and some patients were being treated in parking lots. A magnitude-6.1 quake struck off the southern coast of Java, Indonesia's main island, rocking buildings in the country's capital, Jakarta, and sending people fleeing into the streets earlier in January. "They have been living in exposed conditions for days and there have been reports of increased respiratory illnesses as a result". Immediately after the first shock, the authorities issued a warning about the possibility of a tsunami, which was later canceled.

"I can't see myself getting much sleep for a few days", she said. "The lamp was shaking, and people were shouting 'Get out.' I ran out into the dark because the power cut off".

The Minister, who is attending a security conference in Mataram, Lombok, described the situation in an update on Monday.

Palmer said she felt the natural disaster from where she was staying in a treehouse in Bali.

Dutton told Fairfax the quake "was powerful enough to put us on the floor".

Airports in both Lombok and Bali are still operational, House of Travel product and channel director Dave Fordyce said.
