Crawford mobilizes as Indonesia responds to damaging earthquake
A powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Lombok and nearby Bali on Sunday, damaging buildings, sending terrified residents and tourists running into the streets and triggering a brief tsunami warning. The quake has tragically left more than 90 people dead and the death toll is expected to rise. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this terrible event.
The quake hit at 6:46 p.m. local time Sunday with an epicentre
located 12 miles southwest of East Lombok. Lombok is known
for its leisure and hospitality facilities as it is a popular tourist.
Witnesses spoke of chaos and terror as buildings collapsed and
power and communication lines were cut.
