M6.9 earthquake/aftershock in Lombok, Indonesia - at least another 10 fatalities - August 19, 2018

Have you felt the shaking? If Yes, tell us by using the I FELT IT form behind the earthquake or at the bottom of this page.
Using our EQ Report iOS or Android app would even be easier and very informative (links in banner above this text).
Read also our report of the M6.3 aftershock earlier today in the same area of Lombok.

Update 13:21 UTC: The death toll has now risen to 14 and is expected to continue to rise as communications are still cut to most of NE and E Lombok.  151 houses, 6 facilities and one office also damaged.  However, the damages will undoubtedly rise as the areas cut off from communicating are able to do so.

Update 07:33 UTC: Intermediate damage UPDATE: at least
* 10 people killed
* 24 people injured
* 131 houses destroyed
The reason that this severe shaking earthquake did not make more suffering and damage is that most of the people stayd outside in the open air because of the fear for aftershocks after the M6.3 earthquake hours earlier.

Important Update 07:26 UTC: ER: CATnews tries to put the scientific approach towards aftershocks after major earthquakes 1 step further.This is NOT to be seen as a earthquake prediction, but a rather an advisory of potentially upcoming direct aftershocks based on a scientific approach utilizing historic and concurrent mainshock-aftershock patterns. Subsequent mainshocks (e.g. the two M6.9 Lombok earthquakes or the sequence around Christchurch in 2010-2011) are not part of this advisory.
Catnews : with the on-going aftershocksearthquakes around LombokBali and Sumbawa, here is an experimental (direct) aftershock prognosis map
It is hoped this map can support disaster relief and personal welfare.


Update 22:44 UTC: A video from a hotel in Bali where all the tourists did evacuate for the open space.

Update 22:42 UTC: also common during earthquakes : fires

Update 22:41 UTC: serious cracks in a road

Update 21:06 UTC: Again sad news : At least 2 people got killed during this earthquake.

Update 21:04 UTC: The ultimate explanatory earthquake poster from this earthquake comes from geologist Dr. Jay Patton. Click on the image to be linked to his site. The poster contains lots of important scientific information and can be viewed in full format in his site. Dr Jay Patton is gifted with the ability to translate hard to understand scientific material into easy, everyday language (through texts and images).

Update 18:12 UTC: as could be expected, many many aftershocks

Update 17:58 UTC: Shaking impact on nearby cities and villages and on the population in MMI (Modified Mercalli scaled).

Update 17:54 UTC: Shaking map with possible related damage from the natural disaster specialists at CATnews (Risklayer - CEDIM), Karlsruhe, Germany. Map generated by Andreas Schäfer.
Major damage expected also for #Sumbawa, well felt on #Bali, but not as dangerous (compared to the last one), minor #Tsunami possible (<1m)

Update 17:53 UTC: Based on the present earthquake parameters (Magnitude, Depth, Population, etc) and our experience with earthquake damage impact, earthquake-report.com calls this earthquake extremely dangerous and expects injuries and serious damage

    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged.
