Magnitude 6.6 quake hits North East of Raba, Indonesia: USGS

The US Geological Survey confirmed the mammoth quake hit the northwest Indonesian city

The quake on the island of Lombok in Indonesia killed at least 460 people.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.5 and was located 109 kilometres northwest of the village of Kampungbajo in central Indonesia at a depth of 539 kilometres. As the earthquakes continue to be classified as a provincial-level disaster, the Government of Indonesia has not requested for worldwide assistance to respond to the needs of the people of Lombok.

Lombok, an island east of Bali, was struck by a 7.0 magnitude natural disaster on August 5 and the death toll has climbed to over 460.
