Facebook sorry that balloons appeared in Indonesia natural disaster messages

Indonesia

A strong natural disaster with a magnitude of 6.2 has hit Indonesia's Lombok island, causing buildings to collapse, according to witnesses and the Southeast Asian nation's meteorology and geophysics agency.

Lombok was hit a week earlier by a 6.4 quake that killed 16 people.

This video shows hundreds of people being evacuated from the Gili Islands, an archipelago near northwest Lombok, on Monday, August 6, after the natural disaster.

The aftershock comes after Sunday's devastating 6.9-magnitude natural disaster, which relief agencies said had wiped out entire villages in the worst-hit regions of northern and western Lombok.

A humanitarian crisis is also looming in Lombok, where thousands have been left homeless and in desperate need of clean water, food, medicine and shelter. Some buildings were damaged further because of this quake, ' Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency (BNPB), said.

Aid begun trickling into some of the most isolated regions, officials said midday Thursday, but many people displaced by the quake still lack basic supplies.

The strong aftershock, measured at magnitude 5.9 by the US Geological Survey, caused panic, damage to buildings, landslides and injuries.

The Indonesian island of Lombok has been hit by a strong tremor, as the search continues for victims of Sunday's quake.

Speaking to The Washington Post by phone en route to a badly-damaged village, he said nearly 80 percent of the buildings and structures, including homes, schools and community facilities, have been destroyed in that area.

Facebook apologised after users posting about a deadly quake in Indonesia on the social media platform saw their messages decorated with images of balloons and confetti.

Authorities are gathering information from family members with missing relatives to determine how many more people may have been in the buildings when they collapsed, national search and rescue agency spokesman Yusuf Latif told AFP.

Wiranto, Indonesia's top security minister, told reporters the death toll from Sunday's magnitude 7.0 quake had risen to 319. He says the agency has sent 20 water trucks to five remote areas, including one village of about 1,200 households.

Almost 1,500 people are in hospital with serious injuries and more than 156,000 have been displaced due to the extensive damage to thousands of homes.

Thousands of people have been sleeping in makeshift shelters or out in the open.

They are both popular tourist destinations but are located close to the Ring of Fire which is regularly hit by earthquakes. "For example, how we can deal with the number of damaged houses, mosques, schools, hospitals".
