The number of confirmed deaths from Sunday's horror quake has risen to 259.

A resident shows a photo of missing victims believed to be trapped inside a collapsed building, as rescue workers continue searching after Sunday's quake in Pemenang, North Lombok, Indonesia on August 8, 2018 in this photo taken by Antara Foto.

The aftershock comes just four days after a devastating 6.9-magnitude natural disaster struck Lombok, which relief agencies said had wiped out entire villages in the worst-hit regions in the north and west.

It said it didn't have the potential to cause a tsunami.

TRT World spoke to Jack Hewson who is following the updates from capital, Jakarta.

Motorcycles parked on the street were seen toppled over, while the walls of other nearby buildings collapsed. "I don't think people will choose Lombok anymore this summer".

"Hospitals are overflowing with the injured".

But disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement the information from those sources was incomplete and hadn't been cross-checked for duplication.

Indonesia's top security minister says the death toll from the quake on Sunday has risen to 319, according to The Associated Press.

The company has already advertising the screen of the phone as waterdrop display as it features a drop-like notch. Most of the specifications do lines up with the previous leak when the device passed Bluetooth certifications.

The announcement comes after an inter-agency meeting that was convened to resolve wildly different figures for deaths from different agencies. "Where should we go if we have no house anymore, nowhere to live?" said the mother of 15- and 9-year-old girls.

The Indonesian Red Cross said it was focusing its relief efforts on about 20,000 people in remote areas in the north of the island where aid still has not reached.

"She was praying when the quake happened", said her uncle Tarna, who gave a single name. "Children were running out from the building in panic and she was stepped on by her friends", he said.

Many people used the word "selamat" - meaning "to survive" - as they wrote about the magnitude 7.0 quake, which, CBS reports, killed at least 131 people.

"Access is tough, because the quake [on Sunday] was so strong and paralyzed a lot of buildings", said Husni, a spokesman for the International Federation of the Red Cross who like many Indonesians goes by one name.

The military said it sent five planes carrying food, medicine, blankets, field tents and water tankers. There were too many other injured and dead.

"We need diapers, we lack everything, I'm afraid my baby would get sick", she added. "It's hard to get used to", he said.

A July 29 quake on Lombok killed 16 people.

Lying on the fault lines in the Pacific Basin, Indonesia is a hotspot for earthquakes. An estimated 230,000 people died after a magnitude 9.1 quake triggered a tsunami off the coast of Sumatra in December 2004.
