Indonesia Earthquake: 14 dead, over 100 injured

A STRONG earthquake has shaken Indonesia’s Lombok Island, killing at least 14 people and injuring over 100.

The 6.4 magnitude quake struck the island next to Bali early on Sunday morning, around 6:47am local time (8:47am AEST).

The US Geological Survey said the quake was shallow, striking at a depth of just seven kilometres which amplified the shake.


Of the 14 people confirmed dead, it’s understood ten were killed in the East Lombok district, mostly by falling concrete.

There are fears the death toll could still rise with information still being collected.

At the moment, no Australians are believed to have been killed or injured.

The tremor damaged dozens of buildings and was even felt in Bali, although no damage or casualties were reported there.
