Reuters – A magnitude 6.4 earthquake on Sunday (July 29) struck the popular tourist destination of Lombok in Indonesia, damaging many buildings, Indonesia‘s disaster mitigation agency said.

Many buildings were damaged, video from social media showed, as the medic rushed to treat residents.

The quake, which was quickly followed by an aftershock of magnitude 5.4 in the same area, was centered in the northern part of the island, 30.7 miles (49.5 km) northeast of the city of Mataram, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The earthquake was on land and did not trigger any waves or tsunami. It may have also impacted a popular trekking destination, Mount Rinjani national park.
