  • Houses damaged by earthquake are seen in North Lombok Indonesia Monday Aug. 6 2018. The powerful earthquake struck the Indonesian tourist island of Lombok killing a number of people and shaking neighboring Bali as authorities on Monday said thousand

The United States Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.0 quake was reported around 11:46 a.m. local time off the country's Lombok Island, located next to Bali. There were no immediate reports of casualties, the news agency Reuters reported.

Indonesia, one of the most disaster-prone nations on earth, straddles the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and numerous world's volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.

The tremor came a week after a shallow 6.4-magnitude quake hit the island, killing more than a dozen people and damaging hundreds of buildings.It triggered landslides that briefly trapped trekkers on popular mountain hiking routes.

There was two more strong secondary quakes and more than 60 aftershocks.
