Death toll jumps to 347 in 6.9 Indonesia earthquake – report

The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake destroyed thousands of buildings and triggered panic among tourists and locals on Lombok on Sunday, just a week after a tremor had surged through the holiday island and killed 17.

"When I woke up". "They do not have a water supply and not enough food", Tasman told AFP, after visiting Karang Bajo village in the island's north. "Children are the most vulnerable".

Using satellite images of Lombok from the days following the August 5 quake, scientists from NASA and the California Institute of Technology's joint rapid imaging project made a ground deformation map and measured changes in the island's surface.

"There were also victims who had not previously been reported and victims who were successfully evacuated", said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, BNPB spokesman, in a statement in Pekanbaru, Riau Province, Friday.

The quake was the second in a week to hit Lombok.

A largely agrarian-based province, tourism has always been a major cash earner for the Lombok economy, proving particularly popular with those wanting to escape the commercialism, excesses, and rising prices of Bali.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire and is regularly hit by earthquakes.
