Aftershock measuring 6.2 is third quake to hit Lombok in week

09 August 2018, 05:10 | Glen Norman

It was not immediately clear whether the latest tremor was a new quake or the strongest of the hundreds of aftershocks to hit since Sunday.

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

It said it didn't have the potential to cause a tsunami.

The US Geological survey reported a 5.2-magnitude quake just off the coast of Lombok between the tourist town of Senggigi and the Gili Islands on Monday at 11.50pm.

Witnesses said people ran into the roads in a panic and some buildings collapsed.

"This number will continue increasing as rescue teams continue to find victims under collapsed buildings", the agency said in a statement.

Steven Seagal made Russia-US envoy
In the interview, Seagal also praised Putin as "a great world leader" and a "brilliant tactician". Seagal's grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants, according to a biography on IMDB.

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

The quake is the latest in a series of tremors on the tropical tourist islands that have killed hundreds and damaged thousands of homes.

Almost 1,500 people are in hospital with serious injuries and more than 156,000 have been displaced due to the extensive damage to thousands of homes.

In Kopang Daya village in the hard-hit Tanjung district of north Lombok, a distraught family was burying their 13-year-old daughter who was struck by a collapsing wall and then trampled when the quake Sunday caused a stampede at her Islamic boarding school.

"Access is tough, because the natural disaster [on Sunday] was so strong and paralyzed a lot of buildings", said Husni, a spokesman for the International Federation of the Red Cross who like many Indonesians goes by one name.

Evacuees in some encampments say they are running out of food, while others are suffering psychological trauma after the powerful quake, which struck just one week after another tremor surged through the island and killed 17.

But Mr Sutopo said some areas in the north had still not received any aid.

The Indonesian Red Cross said it had set up 10 mobile clinics in the north of the island.

Most people live in basic housing in small communities.

Kurniawan Eko Wibowo, a doctor at the field hospital, said most patients had broken bones and head injuries.

"We lack the infrastructure to perform operations because (they) need to be performed in a sterile place", Wibowo told AFP.

Thousands of people have been sleeping in makeshift shelters or out in the open.
