The catastrophic tremor was even more powerful than the quake that hit a week ago, devastating the island and leaving 17 people dead.
As a result, a tsunami warning has been issued for the earthquake that shook the island and surrounding nations at a depth of 6.2 miles.
The Meteorology and Geophysics Agency BMKG put out the warning in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, which also shook Bali more than 800 miles away.
The organisation said the tsunami warning issued covers North Lombok, East and North Bali, the north side of East Java, Southeast Madura, South Kalimantan, and South Sulawesi.
Today’s earthquake hit at 7.30pm local time and is the second the island has suffered in a week.
This is a breaking news story.
