Volunteers and rescue personnel have erected more temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on the island.

Another strong quake with a magnitude of 6.2 has hit Indonesia's Lombok island, causing some buildings to collapse, according to witnesses and the South-East Asian nation's meteorology and geophysics agency.

A video posted on Twitter by Indonesia's national disaster agency showed that today's quake caused more buildings and power lines to collapse.

"The quake was felt strongly".

He told the Jakarta Globe that "residents panicked and ran from their shelters" and "several buildings were further damaged".

And in late July, another 6.4-magnitude natural disaster in Lombok killed 16 people and damaged hundreds of houses.

In Kopang Daya village in the hard-hit Tanjung district of north Lombok, a distraught family was burying their 13-year-old daughter who was struck by a collapsing wall and then trampled when the quake Sunday caused a stampede at her Islamic boarding school.

The Red Cross has said that incident, which killed at least 131 people, was "exceptionally destructive".

Another natural disaster has struck the Indonesian island of Lombok as the community battles to recover from Sunday's quake.

The island was still recovering after two other recent earthquakes when the tremor happened.

Across much of the island, a popular tourist destination, once-bustling villages have been turned into virtual ghost towns.

There is a dire need for medical staff and "long-term aid", especially food and medicine in the worst-hit areas, government officials said.

"There are still some evacuees that have not yet been touched by aid, especially in North Lombok and West Lombok", Nugroho tweeted Thursday.

'She was praying when the quake happened, ' said her uncle Tarna, who gave a single name.

"I'm still in pain from giving birth", she told AFP.

"People are always saying they need water and tarps", said Indonesian Red Cross spokesman Arifin Hadi.

Kurniawan Eko Wibowo, a doctor at the field hospital, said most patients had broken bones and head injuries.
