The natural disaster was so strong that it was felt even on the island of Bali, where like the rest of the American celebrity.

In a message on social network Twitter, the Indonesian Red Cross said it helped a woman give birth after the quake at a health post.

The tsunami warning covered North Lombok, East and North Bali, the north side of East Java, Southeast Madura, South Kalimantan, and South Sulawesi.

The third reason is that the houses' structures are not firm enough, lacking reinforced steel bars and a solid foundation", said Suardi, an official in the northern area of the Lombok Island.

Despite the island's status as a tourist location, officials said everyone who died was an Indonesian citizen.

Following a 7.0-magnitude natural disaster that struck Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, on Sunday evening, national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has announced a 50 percent discount on its cargo services for aid supplies to the island.

A spokesman for Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency said many buildings had been affected in Lombok's main city of Mataram, majority built with weak construction materials.

The tsunami warning saw people pour out of their homes to move to higher ground, particularly in North Lombok and Mataram, the capital of West Nusa Tenggara province.

The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake sparked terror among tourists and locals alike, coming just a week after another deadly tremor surged through Lombok, killing at least 17 people. "So we put up this tent in emergency to prevent something bad from happening", said Anci, one of the villagers.

Hundreds of people packed a sliver of brilliant white beach on the six square-mile island, shouting at rescue personnel trying to ensure an orderly evacuation, video and photos supplied by the local water police showed.

Australia's Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton was on the 12th floor of a Lombok hotel at the time of the quake.

My thoughts and prayers for everyone in Lombok and Bali.

"The lower floors we went down there was more damage visible certainly than there was at the top".

"Everyone's a bit shaken but all well".
