Authorities have lifted a tsunami warning that was issued after the quake struck early Sunday evening.


Gary Barlow has thanked fans for their concern after being caught up in a powerful quake in Indonesia which left three people dead.

It comes a week after another tremor killed 16 people and injured dozens more on Lombok. It was also felt on the neighboring island of Bali to the west.

Singapore´s Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam, who was in Lombok for a security conference when the natural disaster struck, described on Facebook how his hotel room on the 10th floor shook violently. "Heard screams", he wrote.

Video aired by Kompas TV showed patients being evacuated from a hospital in Bali's Tabanan district and there were reports that people had left their houses in search of higher ground.


"Delegation thankfully safe though there I was told that there were casualties amongst other guests", he said.

"People filled the streets", said Michelle Lindsay, an Australian tourist.

Medical staff treat patients outside a hospital on Lombok Island after an natural disaster rocked Indonesia on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018.

In July, over 680 people were trapped on a volcano on tourist island Lombok, after a deadly natural disaster hit the island nation. Hotels and other buildings in both locations are not allowed to exceed the height of coconut palms.
