Bali rocked after 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Indonesia’s Lombok Island, tsunami alert issued

Authorities in Indonesia issued a tsunami warning on Sunday after a massive earthquake rocked the popular tourist mecca of Bali, a week after another quake in the same region killed more than a dozen people.

The United States Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.0 quake was reported around 7:46 a.m. ET off the country’s Lombok Island, located next to Bali.

The quake was about 6 miles deep and had an epicenter about a mile east-southeast of Loloan, according to the USGS.

Indonesia’s Disaster Mitigation Agency issued an alert, saying that there was the “potential” for a tsunami to take place
