At least 98 people are dead after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the same Indonesia island that endured a deadly earthquake last Sunday.

More than 230 others we re injured and thousands of people have been left homeless following the power earthquake.

The quake shook the Indonesian island of Lombok on Sunday evening, local time (Sunday morning EDT).

The epicenter was located on the northern tip of the island, where the United States Geological Survey estimates shaking strong enough to cause moderate damage occurred. Aftershocks shook the area on Monday, some with a preliminary magnitude as high as 5.4.

Shaking from this Sunday's earthquake was felt westward throughout the island of Bali and over parts of eastern Java.

Damage reports are mounting, including at the Ngurah Rai International Airport on Bali. At least three people have been killed there, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The airport stated that flight operations are generally running normally as transportation facilities, such as the runway and taxiways, were not damaged.

At more isolated locations, widespread devastation has made it difficult for rescuers to get resources to hard-hit areas. A mosque that collapsed during the earthquake has yet to be searched for survivors due to a lack of heavy equipment, according to an Indonesian disaster agency official.

Four government agencies are working to evacuate tourists from the popular vacation islands northwest of Lombok. The earthquake caused no injuries among tourists, according to the National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

A tsunami warning was issued by the Indonesian Meteorological Agency after the earthquake struck. That warning has since expired. Small waves up to 15 cm (6 inches) high were detected, according to the AP.

Lombok is still cleaning up from the strong earthquake that rattled the island last Sunday morning (July 29).

At least 16 people were killed by that quake. Many buildings collapsed, and more than 1,400 homes were damaged, according to the Associated Press.

Fairly typical August weather is expected in Lombok for continued cleanup and recovery efforts, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Richards.

“There will be some sunshine at times with a shower or thunderstorm over the next couple of days,” he said. “Most of the time, though, can be generally dry.”

Highs will be around 29 C (middle 80s F) daily.



Indonesia is located in the Ring of Fire, which is an area prone to frequent earthquakes.

Sunday's earthquake was i nitially rated with a magnitude of 7.0 but was revised down to 6.9 by the USGS.

Aftershocks have since followed in northern Lombok, including one with a magnitude of 5.4.

This is a breaking situation and AccuWeather will continue to provide updates as they become available.
