Earthquake Lombok, Indonesia – currently 5289 houses damaged (many collapsed) and 49 people injured

Last update: June 23, 2013 at 1:04 pm by By

Update June 23 12:39 UTC : In order to explain what happened, we made the image below with the epicenter as reported by the Indonesian seismological authorities. This epicenter is to the south of the Gili Islands (a first epicenter was reported to the north of the islands).  That way it was felt strong at the Gili Islands but without damaging the infrastructure (also the stretch of water in between the islands and the epicenter may have given some weakening shaking effect). The damage however was within the red area. This area is mainly farmland or soft soil. One has to understand also that this area of the island has very rarely such strong earthquakes, which means that (mostly brick) older houses and infrastructure have not been constructed to withstand strong earthquakes.

Lombok-damaged area

CALL TO LOMBOK TOURISTS

Tourists residing at this moment in one of the many Lombok resorts should be aware of the misery outside their resort. A voluntary contribution to support the most needed on the island may be a great gesture to those in need. We are convinced that local hotel people are able to collect your contribution and to hand it over to the people. The people who in many cases lost all their belongings are mostly poor people who lived in houses who has no earthquake resistance. Thank you

Update June 23 07:57 UTC : The damage toll has increased further. Local Regional Disaster Management Agency reports that after further assessments of the villages worst hit the found out that at least 5,289 houses were damaged to various extend and 49 people have been reported as injured. 31 slightly injured, 5 serious and 13 with different kind of fractures mostly due to collapsing walls.  Tents have been distributed to families which houses are collapsed and are unfit to live in. People are however complaining about the slow distribution of food. They say they need food asap as a lot of them have their food supplies buried below the rubble.

Update 10:38 UTC : Local Lombok Regional Disaster Management Agency, West Nusa Tenggara, reports that the shaking resulted in 1,700 severely damaged houses. 24 people were injured, 3 of them seriously. The seriously injured people are being hospitalized in Tanjung.  The 3 districts who where most severely hit by the shaking were Kecamatan Gangga, Tanjung and Kecamatan Pemenang. We have NO reports of fatalities at the time of writing.
At 6 villages, a lot of brick houses have collapsed. 27 houses of worship, consisting of 15 mosques, 10 temples and two monasteries were damaged at various extend. BPBD has now setup a command post on Lombok to distribute relief aid.
We have no knowledge of tourists being hurt but almost all of them were very scared, especially those residing at Lombok or the Gili Islands.
We have 1 major remark to tourists staying at the island : DO NOT RUN OUT OF YOUR HOTEL WHILE THE SHAKING IS GOING ON, THIS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS YOU CAN DO. Most of people getting hurt during earthquakes are victims of falling objects while running out of houses, offices etc. Read carefully this internationally accepted advise.

Update 10:38 UTC : It is reported that an unknown number of people were injured while fleeing from their homes. No injuries by falling debris so far. The settlement were damage was reported was “Kopang“.

Update 09:02 UTC : Local Indonesian newspaper Merdeka reports that a unspecified number of houses were damaged at Lombok and that a couple of houses even collapsed. At the time of writing there were NO reports of injured people.

Update 08:29 UTC : BMKG shaking map for this earthquake. This shaking map has a common zoom index which means that we cant see the detailed MMI values of the Gili Islands. The shaking map below gives a maximum shaking of MMI IV or light shaking. Based on the Experience reports we have received it was a MMI VI at the nearest island

Update 07:29 UTC : After reading some of our own reports from the Gili Islands, we can confirm that at least minor damage was generated. Cracks in walls, fallen plaster, etc.

Update 07:27 UTC : BMKG, the local Indonesian seismological agency reports a Magnitude of 5.4 at a depth of 10 km, more or less in line with the international agencies.

Update 07:21 UTC : The epicenter of this shallow earthquake was below or just off the coast of the Gili Islands. All 3 islands are very touristic and 2 of the islands are very vulnerable for Tsunami waves.  The Magnitude is however not strong enough to generate destructive tsunami waves.

Update : The seismogram of this earthquake. the Geofon seismogram shows also the first aftershocks

Update :  One of our readers is reporting broken windows in Lombok, which puts another view on this earthquake. As the earthquake was close to the coast (but as there is always a serious error margin) the coastal habitation may have been hit with some minor structural damage. When you have seen any structural damage, please let us know.

Update : The earthquake is shallow but as the epicenter is out in the sea, the impact on land will be weakened a lot. Earthquake-Report.com does not think that this earthquake will generate any serious damage.

The earthquake happened at close distance from the Lombok coast but was also felt well at Bali, a major touristic destination
