People in Bali stay outside after 7.0 earthquake shakes the Indonesian island

6 August 2018

A magnitude 7.0 earthquake in Bali hit the neighbouring Lombok island on Sunday (August 5). The quake killed at least one person. It was felt for several seconds in Bali, where people ran out of houses, hotels, and restaurants. The country's disaster management agency urged people to stay away from the sea. However, an initial warning of a tsunami with waves of up to half a metre was later withdrawn.
