  • A second earthquake has hit Lombok one week after the first struck the popular destination island

However, an initial warning of a tsunami with waves of up to half a metre was later withdrawn.

The tremor was so powerful it was felt on the neighboring island of Bali where, according to BNPB, two people died. Thousands of people were evacuated to outside shelters.

"I also instruct all medical personnel on Lombok Island to provide health services to all affected residents", TGB said.

Residents stand next to bikes and debris at a mall in Bali's capital Denpasar on August 5, 2018 after a major natural disaster rocked neighbouring Lombok island. The epicentre of the natural disaster, which struck at the depth of 31 kilometres (19 miles), was near Loloan on the northern end of Lombok island.

Singapore's Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam, who was in Lombok for a security conference when the quake struck, described on Facebook how his hotel room on the 10th floor shook violently.

Trump lawyer: If Mueller subpoenas president, case will go to Supreme Court
President Trump's "fixer" Michael Cohen has reportedly claimed that then-candidate Trump approved the meeting ahead of time . The revelation that the Trump Tower meeting was called to transmit damaging information on Clinton is not a new one.

"Walls cracked, it was quite impossible to stand up", he said. "Came out, and made my way down a staircase, while building was still shaking. Lots of cracks, fallen doors", he wrote on Facebook.

The latest quake, which triggered a brief tsunami warning, damaged buildings as far away as Denpasar on Bali, including a department store and the airport terminal, where ceiling panels were shaken loose, authorities said.

Australia's Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says he was "very lucky" to escape a deadly natural disaster on the Indonesian island of Lombok unharmed.

Several amateur videos of the quake show people running in panic from houses and building shaking violently due to its intensity.

Travellers at the global airports in Lombok and Bali were thrown into panic and there was minor damage to the buildings, but operations were not disrupted, officials said. "The lamp was shaking, and people were shouting 'Get out.' I ran out into the dark because the power cut off", AP quoted Harian, a Lombok woman who gave one name, as saying.

Army soldiers who fought in the November, 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir - 1,024 Americans are still missing from that battle. The US military flew the caskets from Osan Air Base in South Korea. "This direction is without a doubt correct", he said.

A 6.9-magnitude natural disaster hit Indonesia's Lombok island today at around 5:16 PM local time.

A joint search and rescue team was evacuating hundreds of tourists from three popular vacation islands off the northwest of Lombok.

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes tweeted that the budget airline would try to lay on extra flights, while Indonesian budget carriers Lion Air and Citilink said there had been a jump in demand for outbound flights from Lombok and Bali.

The Indonesian archipelago, where Lombok and Bali are located, is a part of the Pacific Ring of Fire-an area of intense seismic and volcanic activity. In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 quake off Sumatra island triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.

Trump says Koch brothers are a 'total joke'
