VIDEOS reveal city in chaos as Lombok crumbles under another earthquake

The first quake, a 6.9 magnitude event, killed almost 350 people, according to Indonesian state media.

Evacuees in some encampments say they are running out of food, while others are suffering psychological trauma after the powerful quake, which struck just one week after another tremor surged through the island and killed 17. They are now sleeping outside, some subsisting on crackers and chili sauce as food supplies run out. "Where should we go if we have no house anymore, nowhere to live?" said the mother of 15- and 9-year-old girls.

The latest quake, which is understood to have struck 20 minutes before the building fell to the ground, claimed at least six fresh casualties and sent the death toll to more than 320.

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

"We still have supplies for the next few days, but I'm not sure about after that", Billa Rabbani, a spokeswoman from the Peduli Anak orphanage, told AFP. "It's cold at night and very hot during the day". "I'm very anxious, we need help here".

Rescue workers are still digging through rubble and trying to get aid to victims of the earlier, larger quake.

Authorities made announcements over loudspeakers at evacuation sites, urging people to remain calm and stay inside tents or find open space if they were inside or near buildings.
