Aftershock measuring 6.2 is third quake to hit Lombok in week

British holidaymakers have told of panic and confusion as they waited to be evacuated from Gili

The death toll from a powerful natural disaster that struck the Indonesian island of Lombok is climbing, and could reach 400, according to an independent Indonesian news service.

Because of the magnitude of the natural disaster, a large amount of telecommunications infrastructure in Lombok was damaged, but this did not affect the network and range of Net1 Indonesia 4G LTE.

Scientists say the powerful Indonesian natural disaster that killed almost 400 people lifted the island it struck by as much as 25 centimetres (10 inches). In addition to providing emergency shelter supplies (including tarpaulins and shelter toolkits), the Red Cross will distribute materials for repairing and rebuilding damaged houses and advise on building or rebuilding more safely.

BNPB spokesman Sutopo Nugroho said there has been 355 aftershocks following Sunday's quake.

While the 7.0 magnitude quake that struck Lombok on August 5 caused widespread damage and casualties that will never be forgotten here, an incessant wave of aftershocks is fueling a sense that the crisis is far from over - and that the worst may be yet to come.

Survivors of the quake have also been shaken by hundreds of aftershocks, including a shallow 5.9-magnitude quake Thursday which caused people to flee evacuation shelters crying and screaming.

Almost 1,500 people have been hospitalized with serious injuries and more than 156,000 displaced, Nugroho told AFP.

Humanitarian groups say that they are focusing their efforts on reaching these areas which have so far been impassable because of collapsed buildings, roads and other destruction related to Sunday's quake. At least two dozen people were injured, including 17 who were still being treated Friday at West Nusatenggara Provincial General Hospital in Mataram.

Thousands of tourists have left Lombok since Sunday, fearing further earthquakes, some on extra flights provided by airlines and others on ferries to the neighboring island of Bali. He also said that search and rescue operations were ongoing but things weren't as smooth and they would like as the aftershocks added to the woes.

In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 quake off Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.

Thousands of tourists have been evacuated from Lombok and the Gili Islands.

"Today, we managed to find one dead victim buried under the rubble of a building in Sigar Penjalin village".
