Television footage showed panicked residents and tourists fleeing to safety on both islands, especially after a warning that the quake and major aftershocks could cause a tsunami.

Most of the people killed in the magnitude-7.0 quake, which was first announced as a magnitude 6.8 and then revised upward, were from the northern and western regions of Lombok.
