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.
