Two earthquakes struck Lombok island within a week, with the first taking place on 29 July and the second, 5 August. Both earthquakes affected five districts in West Nusa Tenggara Province: North Lombok, East Lombok, West Lombok, Central Lombok and Mataram. The first earthquake killed 14, with at least 135 people injured and 14,706 displaced1 as well as damaging many buildings and homes. The second earthquake was felt strongly in Lombok Island, Sumbawa Island and Bali Island and up to the eastern part of East Java, killing at least 98 people and resulting in more than 200 injured – among those are four PMI volunteers who were transported to hospital for immediate treatment and were discharged the next day. The number of casualties is expected to increase as the earthquake happened in the evening and disrupted power supply as well as communication lines. Some houses already partially damaged – or their structural integrity affected – by the previous event of 29 July, collapsed under the brunt of the second. five districts in West Nusa Tenggara Province: North Lombok, East Lombok, West Lombok, Central Lombok and Mataram
