Indonesia natural disaster: Lombok rocked by third tremor in a week

Aid workers are trying to help the thousands of people who have been left homeless and without clean water, food, medicine or shelter. The United States Geological Survey measured the quake at 5.9.

It said it didn't have the potential to cause a tsunami. They are now sleeping outside, some subsisting on crackers and chili sauce as food supplies run out. 'There was no way to get her out'.

"She was praying when the natural disaster happened", said her uncle Tarna, who gave a single name. "At the most we go in quickly to grab something and then run back out".

In total, an estimated 20,000 people have been displaced by the massive quake.

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

"I don't know how to rebuild on my own". "It's cold at night and very hot during the day". "I need diapers, I need milk".

The Indonesian Red Cross said it had set up 10 mobile clinics in the north of the island. He also says they're continuing to look for people with untreated injuries.

While exchanging messages on Facebook about the natural disaster, many Indonesian speakers used the word "selamat", which has several meanings including "safe", "unhurt" or "congratulations" depending on the context.

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

Officials have said around three-quarters of Lombok's rural north had been without electricity since Sunday, although power has been restored in most areas.

Wiranto said the government will develop a plan to rebuild communities on Lombok, which like its more famous neighbour Bali is a popular tourist destination with powder-white beaches, mountains and a lush interior.

Another tweet showed video footage of the quake affecting Ubud.

Like Bali, Lombok is known for its pristine beaches and mountains.

The damage from the three consecutive quakes is apparently severe, with nearly 15-hundred injured and more than 150-thousand displaced.

Relief teams, deployed after Sunday's quake, have not yet managed to reach some sites on the island near the epicenter due to the access difficulties, Security Minister Wiranto said, quoted by The Jakarta Post.
