Indonesian earthquakes

6th August 2018

Lombok in Indonesia has been affected by a second large earthquake in a week.

The earthquake which occurred on Sunday measured 6.9 and was only 30km deep. At least 91 have been killed and thousands of buildings have been destroyed.

Thousands of tourists are desperate to leave the area and the airports on Lombok and the neighbouring island of Bali are now working as normal; despite some damage to the structure.
