New earthquake on Indonesian island Lombok triggers landslides

New earthquake on Indonesian island Lombok triggers landslidesA strong earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Lombok Sunday, triggering landslides, damaging buildings and sending people fleeing just two weeks after a tremor killed more than 480 people there. The 6.3-magnitude quake, centred in East Lombok, struck at a relatively shallow depth of seven kilometres (four miles) and was felt across the island, officials said. It was the third major quake in less than a month to rock the island, after deadly tremors on July 29 and August 5 and numerous aftershocks. "The earthquake caused people to panic and flee their houses," national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told Metro TV. "There have been no reports of death or (serious) damage but people are traumatised." At least one person suffered minor injuries while two more fainted from shock, he added. Deadly earthquake strikes Indonesia's Lombok, in pictures Landslides were reported in a national park on Mount Rinjani where hundreds of hikers had been briefly trapped after the quake in late July. The park has been closed since then. Local disaster mitigation agency spokesman Agung Pramuja said several houses and other structures in the district of Sembalun, on the slopes of Mount Rinjani, collapsed on Sunday after being damaged by the previous two quakes. The structures included checkpoints once used by trekkers climbing the mountain, Pramuja said, adding that the exact number of damaged buildings was still being checked. Residents said the latest earthquake was felt strongly in East Lombok. "I was driving to deliver aid to evacuees when suddenly the electricity pole was swaying. I realised it was an earthquake. "People started to scream and cry. They all ran to the street," East Lombok resident Agus Salim told AFP. The tremor was also felt in the island's capital Mataram and on the neighbouring resort island of Bali.
