Indonesia's disaster agency said the nighttime quake was centered at sea, 55 km northeast of Situbondo city, and also felt in Lombok.

At least 2,045 people have been confirmed dead and as many as 5,000 others are believed to be missing after a 7.5-magnitude quake struck the coast of one of the Southeast Asian archipelago's largest islands on September 28. The U.S. Geological Survey said it had a 6.0 magnitude.

"I felt it for about 10 seconds".

The head of Indonesia's geophysics agency said there had been no reports of casualties or damage, although information was still being gathered in East Java province. People poured out of their houses.

"We felt the natural disaster a bit, but it was not too strong", Constable Roy Michael told Reuters by phone from Rabaul police station.

Cute flaccid myelitis: Three new cases of rare polio-like illness emerge
The disorder is called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. "The CDC has been asking us to pay attention to this for quite a while". There are three new cases of a rare illness with symptoms similar to polio , and the patients are being treated in Pittsburgh.

The quake struck during the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, but no one associated with those meetings in Bali was affected, according to early reports.

Some tourists and residents on Bali went outdoors as a precaution but then back to sleep when there was no tsunami warning.

The official search for casualties of a devastating quake and tsunami on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi began winding down on Thursday, as authorities prioritize support for the living almost two weeks after the disaster.

An estimated 80,000 people were displaced by the disaster, many squatting in tents outside their destroyed homes.

Hazardous tsunami waves from the quake were possible within 300 km of the epicentre along Papua New Guinea coastlines, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. Stretches of the coastline were trashed by the tsunami that Mr. Nugroho said had waves up to 11 meters (36 feet) high.

At least two of the worst-hit neighborhoods, Petobo and Balaroa, will be closed off and designated as mass graves.

"At the same time, if they ask us to help, if they're pointing "please look here, my family is under here", of course, we can't say "no", we have to dig".

After a rare appeal for worldwide assistance, Indonesia is now trying to limit foreign involvement in the disaster relief effort.

A few foreign aid workers have been in the disaster zone, including a team from the group Pompiers Humanitaires Francais that searched for survivors, but they have spoken of difficulties in getting entry permits and authorization.
