  • Earthquakes are common in Indonesia

On Aug 5, the 6.9-magnitude quake struck off Lombok Island, a week after a 6.4-magnitude quake hit the tourist destination island.

A strong natural disaster located far below the Earth's surface shook an area in Indonesia's Flores Sea, causing shaking on land but no damage, officials said.

The death toll from a devastating quake that hit Indonesia's Lombok island has risen to 460, while the damage is expected to exceed $A693 million, the country's disaster management agency says.

A total of 7,773 people sustained injuries as the quake caused damage to 71,962 houses, 671 educational facilities, 52 health infrastructures, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

There was no tsunami threat and no immediate reports of damage.

USGS said there was little likelihood of serious damage or casualties.

Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because of its location on the "Ring of Fire", an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin. As the earthquakes continue to be classified as a provincial-level disaster, the Government of Indonesia has not requested for worldwide assistance to respond to the needs of the people of Lombok.
