Magnitude 6.6 quake hits North East of Raba, Indonesia: USGS

A magnitude 6.5 offshore earthquake struck the Indonesian archipelago late on Friday the U.S. Geological Survey said

Two earthquakes struck Lombok island within a week, with the first taking place on 29 July and the second, 5 August.

The aggressive quake was followed by powerful aftershocks that destroyed thousands of homes and displaced about 350,000 people. Information released by the National Disaster Management Authorities (nationally referred to as BNPB1 ) as of 14 August indicate 468 deaths, 7,773 injured and 352,736 people displaced.

It is noted that the number of victims will continue to rise because rescuers haven't taken all of the collapsed houses.

An natural disaster earlier this month rocked the Indonesian island of Lombok, killing more than 400 people and causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage, according to the government.
