"All five have been accounted for and are safe‚" Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said Tuesday.

At least 91 people were killed and hundreds others injured in a massive quake measuring 7 on the Richter scale that struck Indonesia's Lombok Island, authorities said on Monday.

The death toll from last weekend's powerful natural disaster on Indonesia's Lombok island rose to 131 on Wednesday as rescuers found more people crushed under collapsed buildings, though some still held out hope of finding survivors.

THE rescue team had done everything it could to recover the body of a man killed instantly when a massive natural disaster brought down his home on the Indonesian island of Lombok. But the rescuers and heavy equipment were "very much needed elsewhere".

"When it happened, we stood with residents in the middle of the street and watched houses collapse around us", said Yustrianda Sirio, supervisor of a group of university students from Java doing a community service program in East Lombok.

Indonesian army personnel transport an injured villager to an evacuation centre for treatment at Lapangan Tanjung in northern Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara province on August 8, 2018, three days after the area was struck by an natural disaster.

"Of course they are all sad", he said through a translator.

There were no Irish fatalities in the quake and no serious injuries, Mr O'Sullivan said the extent of the injuries among the Irish there is sunburn, exhaustion and cuts and grazes.

On July 29th there was a 6-point-4 magnitude quake that left at least 17 people dead.

"We were moving metre to metre side to side, up and down, people were screaming and running away from any structures and trees", she said. The islets are renowned for their crystal clear waters that draw snorkelers and divers from all over the world.

The disaster happened on the Sunday of August 5, 2018, shortly after a 6.4-magnitude quake hit the island on July 29, which led to the death of 17 people as well as hundreds of injuries.

Evacuation of tourists is underway with 11 boats mobilized, Sutopo told Xinhua in a text message. Some held up simple cardboard signs begging for aid as ambulances and other vehicles raced by. The teams and one excavator arrived after dark Tuesday to investigate.

Indonesia's location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin, makes it prone to earthquakes.

There is a dire need for medical staff, food and medicine in the worst-hit areas, according to Muhammad Zainul Majdi, the governor of West Nusa Tenggara province which covers Lombok.

"They have not been touched by any assistance", Nguroho said.

Several hours later, she asked news organizations not to write more stories about her lively stream-of-consciousness tweets, suggesting media share information to help those who need it instead.
