Another strong quake hits Indonesia's Lombok, witnesses say buildings have collapsed

Gili islands The three tiny islands are located just off the coast of Lombok

The ministry said it will "constantly review the need for an additional adjustment to the travel warning level, keeping a close eye on quake-related situations on and near Lombok Island".

The series of earthquakes in Lombok island has reduced thousands of houses to rubble and most of the deaths were reportedly caused by collapsing buildings. They are now sleeping outside, some subsisting on crackers and chili sauce as food supplies run out.

In Kopang Daya village in the hard-hit Tanjung district of north Lombok, a distraught family was burying their 13-year-old daughter who was struck by a collapsing wall and then trampled when Sunday's quake caused a stampede at her Islamic boarding school.

"We were stuck in the traffic while delivering aid, suddenly it felt like our auto was hit from behind, it was so strong", witness Sri Laksmi told AFP.

He told the Jakarta Globe that "residents panicked and ran from their shelters" and "several buildings were further damaged".

On Tuesday, the government estimated that 80 percent of the buildings in northern Lombok have been destroyed.

Sumiati and her baby are among the survivors waiting for aid.

Meanwhile, officials said the epicentre of the third quake was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami. It struck northwest of Lombok, which is close to Bali, but the agency said it would not cause a tsunami.

"The Indonesian Red Cross, supported by global partners, will accompany families and communities to help them recover from the impact of these earthquakes and increase their resilience to future shocks".

As relief agencies get to work on the ground, they warned the full impact of the quake may take days to become known.

The number of people on Lombok said to be living under the poverty line is put at more than double the official 2017 national average of 10.12 per cent.

Nearly 390,000 people, about 10 per cent of Lombok's population, are homeless or displaced after the natural disaster, which damaged and destroyed about 68,000 homes. Majority are not willing to stay in the building while they are undergoing (an) operation or after they have undergone (an) operation. Search and rescue teams have been working to access those in the worst-affected areas, close to the epicentre in northern Lombok.

Rescuers have found three bodies and also managed to pull one man alive from the twisted wreckage of the mosque, reduced to a pile of concrete and metal bars, with its towering green dome folded in on itself.
