    The tsunami warning Is now withdrawn, the epicenter was inland on Lombok island. Information on damage and casualties there is not yet available:

    "Powerful quake rocks Indonesia's Lombok, Bali islands" - http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-indonesia-quake-tsunami/powerful-quake-rocks-indonesias-lombok-bali-islands-idUKKBN1KQ0EC

    Only a week ago a magnitude 6.4 quake killed 14 people on Lombok and briefly stranded hundreds of hikers on the slopes of a volcano.

    Tourists flee, widespread heavy damage and casualties. Strong aftershocks up to 6.2 are expected.

    I decided not to go there last week, hearing that the fast ferries were not running because of rough weather. The villages where I stay are 'totally damaged', coms are down so I don't yet know of casualties.
