Indonesia: Death Toll Rises Above 130

On 5 August, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake and several strong aftershocks hit Lombok. The death toll has now risen above 130 people, with hope fading for those still trapped. The earthquakes have resulted in a humanitarian crisis, with 156,000 homeless and serious shortages of clean water, food and medicine.

On 7 August, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Smartraveller service issued updated travel advice for Indonesia. “Following the powerful earthquake which hit Lombok on 5 August, we are temporarily recommending Australians reconsider their need to travel to Lombok, including the Gili Islands. The level of our advice for other regions of Indonesia, including Bali, has not changed: exercise a high degree of caution in Indonesia. Higher levels apply in Central Sulawesi and Papua provinces.”

Indonesia lies within the active seismic zone known as "the Pacific Ring of Fire" and earthquakes are not uncommon. Expect the associated disruptions as a result of the quake. Follow local media for more information and remain vigilant.  Check with your airline and accommodation provider before travelling there. Follow the instructions of local authorities.
