Tsunami warning after 7.0 quake strikes near Indonesia's Bali

Indonesia-earthquake

A strong natural disaster struck the Indonesian tourist island of Lombok on Sunday, killing at least 39 people and shaking neighboring Bali, one week after another quake on Lombok killed more than a dozen.

Pictures show damage to buildings and vehicles, residents being evacuated and some people receiving medical treatment.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake had a magnitude of 7.0 and a depth of 10.5 kilometers (6 miles). Four aftershocks ranging from 5.4- to 4.3-magnitude followed the main quake, the USGS said.

Teigen and family have been staying in a house on stilts, which is a great way to enjoy Bali's attractive water, but must not feel great in an quake.

Officials have urged people to move away from the ocean.

Lombok, about 40km (25 miles) east of Bali, attracts tourists from around the world to its beaches and hiking trails.

The quake killed at least 39 people, injured dozens and damaged buildings, officials said.

The natural disaster also triggered a tsunami warning for the area that since has been canceled, said Dwikorita Karnawati, head of Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency.

The powerful quake triggered panic among tourists and residents, and was also felt on the neighbouring island of Bali.

"By the time I thought "This is going on a bit long" there were too many people under the table for me to join them but it stopped shortly after that".

It comes a week after another quake hit the island killing at least 16 people.

A major quake on the Indonesian island of Lombok today killed at least 19 people, injured dozens and damaged buildings, officials said. People filled the streets.

Barely a week after being struck by an natural disaster, the Indonesian island of Lombok was once again rocked today, this time by a 7.0-magnitude tremblor. Lombok and Bali are located in what's considered the "ring of fire", a section of the Indonesian archipelago prone to intense volcanic activity.
