Indonesia earthquake: Chaos as tens of thousands flee, with almost 100 dead

Thousands of terrified tourists are being taken off the island of Lombok by boat. The earthquake has caused much more damage than the one a few days ago – destroying roads, bridges, disrupting electricity and communications and damaging huge numbers of buildings.

At least 98 people were killed and over 200 injured with thousands now homeless.

Collapsed buildings and bridges, impassable roads littered with debris – it’s been an impossible task for rescuers in the Indonesian earthquake.

The powerful magnitude 7 tremors hit near the north coast of the island of Lombok yesterday evening just 50 kilometres east of the popular holiday island of Bali.

Around 10,000 people have been evacuated from the area as it continues to be rocked by dozens of aftershocks. Boats have also been sent to the nearby Gili islands to collect more than a thousand tourists stranded there. Our Chief Correspondent Alex Thomson reports.

  2. Muslims here must be try to be more pious since we can see how big these mosques are but with just a row of people is one of the causes of such Calamity but we see another Imaam with full mosque completing their salah without any damage shows their better eemaan and help of Allah. Be Pious and die as Martyrs as its treated as martyrdom if building on the person and he dies due to it.

  3. The amount of racist hypocrites in the comments are staggering… Like seriously no respect for other people, lots of advertisers, elitists and aholes… This is the reason why bad things happen in the world coz the people in it including me are extremely toxic to one another

  4. One big tip when building. Mortar mix 3 sand 1 x cement not 6 sand and 1 cement.
    If you look at all the fallen brick work you will see MANY clean bricks, meaning wrong mix of mortar and too dry a mix. The right mix could have saved many homes and LIVES!
    MY thoughts and prayers to the people of Lombok, Indonesia..

    Bible is talking about this in Last Days
    Matthew 24:7-8
    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

    8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
    IT IS NOT MOTHER NATURE as some are saying or pretending,doesnโ€™t exist Mother Nature at all,but there is a God who is not lying ,He is saying the Truth ,…….and intensity of all these things will increase.
    Watch what is happening all over the world people there are signs everywhere.

    30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
    God bless you all and God may open your eyes and your hearts to know Jesus as a Saviour,amen!!!

  7. OIO CHANNEL the tumbnail is misleading, it shows people trapped in small island of gili Trawangan, waiting to be rescued to the main island of Bali or Lombok. Nobody dead on the Gilis islands but most victims were on the main island of Lombok and ALL are locals. So stop manipulating the headlines to attract more views, shame on you
