Source: BBC NEWS: At least 22 people have died after a powerful earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok, officials said.
The 7.0 magnitude quake damaged buildings, triggered power cuts and was felt in neighbouring Bali.
A tsunami warning was issued in its aftermath but it was lifted several hours later.
It comes a week after another quake hit the island killing at least 16 people.
Lombak is a popular tourist site for its beaches and hiking trails.
The US Geological Survey said the latest quake, off the north coast of Lombak, struck 10km (6.21 miles) underground.
More than 50 people were injured.
A spokesman for Indonesia’s disaster mitigation agency told the AFP news agency that many buildings had been affected in Lombok’s main city of Mataram.
In several parts of Mataram, there were electricity blackouts.
Patients at Denpasar hospital in Bali were evacuated from the building and tended to by doctors in the streets.
Debris also littered the streets of Lombok and Bali, which local people sought to clean up in the hours after the quake.
The quake was felt for several seconds in Bali, where people ran out of buildings.
“All the hotel guests were running so I did too. People filled the streets,” said Michelle Lindsay, an Australian tourist in Bali told Reuters news agency.(BBC)
