Another Quake hits Lombok in Indonesia reportedly destroying several buildings making it the third hit in just about a week.
People ran onto roads in panic and buildings were damaged by the magnitude-5.9 quake, causing more “trauma,” national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.
Buildings still standing on the island have been weakened after Sunday’s 6.9 quake that killed at least 227 people and a 6.4 quake on July 29 that killed 16.
There were also conflicting reports over the number of people who have died in Sunday’s quake — with the governor of the province that includes Lombok, the military, the national search and rescue agency and the regent of North Lombok all issuing different death tolls, ranging from 227 to 381.
Thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed in the 6.9 quake and more than 150,000 people are homeless.
