Another Powerful Quake Hits Lombok and Bali; No Tsunami Warning

The latest tremor, the third in over a week, had a magnitude of 6.2, according to Indonesia's geological agency.

Indonesia's geological agency said the quake on Thursday afternoon had a magnitude of 6.2 and was shallow, at a depth of 12 kilometres (seven and a half miles), centred in the north west of the island.

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

Rescue team members prepare to find people trapped inside a mosque after an natural disaster hit on Sunday in Pemenang, Lombok Island, Indonesia, on August 8, 2018.

"People are always saying they need water and tarps", Spokesman Arifin Hadi told the AP about the current rescue efforts.

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

Rescue workers are still digging through rubble and trying to get aid to survivors of the earlier, larger quake.

Speaking to The Washington Post by phone en route to a badly-damaged village, he said nearly 80 percent of the buildings and structures, including homes, schools and community facilities, have been destroyed in that area.

But he then made some baffling comments, claiming the finish was one of his biggest achievements in football. United play their first Premier League match of the season against Leicester on Friday at Old Trafford.

The latest quake on Thursday was felt strongly on the island and followed a 6.9 quake on Sunday that killed at least 131 people and damaged thousands of houses.

The government says more than 1400 people were injured and more than 156,000 displaced.

A magnitude 6.4 natural disaster on July 29 killed 16 people and cracked and weakened many structures, amplifying the damage that occurred in Monday's quake.

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

"I visited villages yesterday that were completely collapsed", he added, while other teams in East and North Lombok had reported villages where 75% of homes were damaged.

Some evacuees have complained of being ignored or experiencing long delays for supplies to arrive at shelters.

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

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