Quakes continued to rattle the island, including a 5.5-magnitude tremor at around 2 a.m., the Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) said.

The worst on record was in 2004 after a magnitude 9.3 undersea quake triggered a tsunami in western Indonesia, which killed 222,000 people in the area.

He said the death toll is still expected to increase.

Lombok had been hit by a 6.4 quake on July 29.

"We went through the rubble and found water and bits and pieces and took it up on the hill where the locals were still hanging out", Mr Hulley said.

"We can't live in our house again, but things can be rebuilt, and stuff can be replaced". But on their first day of the trip, the natural disaster destroyed nearly the whole place, and their mission took on a critical turn amid aftershocks that won't stop.

"(It) was mayhem", she said. "Shaking. Parts of the building crumbling. Glass shattering. It started slow, but amped up very quickly". She said they are also heartbroken for 16 of the hotel staff who lost their homes.

Australia's home affairs minister tweeted that he and his delegation were safely evacuated in darkness from a Lombok hotel where they have been staying during a regional security conference.

The natural disaster sparked a tsunami warning which was later cancelled, the Jakarta Post reported.

"It was just sheer panic", Montgomery-Lay told CTV News via video chat. The warning was lifted after only small waves were recorded.

Some said they felt stranded and complained about a lack of coordination and affordable transport to the tourist hub of Senggigi or Lombok's airport, where dozens slept on the floor overnight awaiting flights out.

The death toll from a powerful quake on the Indonesian island of Lombok rose to 105 on Tuesday as rescuers clawed through the rubble of homes, schools and mosques for survivors and evacuees faced another night in the open.

"There are only a few tourists left here".

"Bali. Trembling. So long", Teigen tweeted to her 10.6 million followers.

Indonesian villagers say they are facing an uncertain future as recovery process of the destruction caused by the quake is progressing slowly.

There are 2,221 Canadians registrants overseas in Indonesia and 480 registered in Bali, said Elizabeth Reid, spokeswoman for Global Affairs Canada. In 2004, the Indian Ocean tsunami killed 226,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia.

"Canada stands with the people of Indonesia during this hard time. The Department is in contact with the South African Embassy in Jakarta‚ Indonesia‚ in order to provide consular assistance to the South African citizens should it be required".

"We encourage Canadians in Indonesia to contact their family and friends". He said no foreign tourists are among the dead.

On Gili Trawangan, one of three popular vacation islands near Lombok, thousands of tourists and residents spent Sunday night on a hill because of tsunami fears, said British visitor Saffron Amis.

Indonesian authorities estimated at least 2700 people had been evacuated from the Gili islands since Monday.

Like Bali, Lombok is known for its pristine beaches and mountains. "We are doing our best so we can fly out as many as possible".
