Arifin Muhammad Hadi, head of disaster management of the Indonesian Red Cross Society, confirmed the death toll. Hundreds of people have been taken to local hospitals and thousands of homes have been damaged, he said.

The quake occurred in the early evening after sunset and was the second powerful temblor on Lombok in a week. A 6.4-magnitude earthquake shook the island July 29, killing more than a dozen people and briefly stranding hundreds of hikers on the slopes of a volcano.

“All the hotel guests were running, so I did too. People filled the streets,” Michelle Lindsay, an Australian tourist on Bali, was quoted as saying to Reuters. “A lot of officials were urging people not to panic.”

It was a very different experience for a young couple from United Kingdom who told Mirror that they had got engaged just five minutes before the quake struck.

Cally Charles, 23, said her partner Ashley Knight had popped the question on a beach and were in the lift heading back up to their hotel.

“It was the scariest moment of my life,” she said. “Five minutes before the earthquake my boyfriend proposed on the beach! He’s one of a kind he made the earth move for me!”

Indonesia’s ministry of tourism released a statement saying no tourists had been “injured or impacted” by the quake.

Landline phone and cellphone services were reported down in Tanjung, the Lombok town nearest to the epicentre.
