A strong natural disaster hit Indonesia's Lombok island on Thursday, causing some buildings to collapse.

Authorities made announcements over loudspeakers at evacuation sites, urging people to remain calm and stay inside tents or find open space if they were inside or near buildings.

It was not immediately clear whether the latest tremor was a new quake or the strongest of the hundreds of aftershocks to hit since Sunday.

Despite the mammoth recovery efforts ahead, Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency said Wednesday that worldwide aid was not yet needed.

Volunteers and rescue personnel have erected more temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on the island.

"The natural disaster does not have any tsunami potential", Hary Tirto Djatmiko, spokesman for Indonesia's meteorology, climatology and geophysics agency (BMKG), said of Thursday's aftershock.

The aftershock follows a series of quakes which have hit Indonesia over the past two weeks.

"We were stuck in the traffic while delivering aid, suddenly it felt like our auto was hit from behind, it was so strong", witness Sri Laksmi told AFP.

Speaking to The Washington Post by phone en route to a badly-damaged village, he said nearly 80 percent of the buildings and structures, including homes, schools and community facilities, have been destroyed in that area.

Twenty-four people were injured by falling debris in the tremor, Nugroho said.

The governor of the province that includes Lombok where the quake was centred, the military, the national search, and rescue agency and regent of North Lombok issued different death tolls that ranged from 226 to 381.

A further 1447 have been injured and 165,003 displaced.

Bull said Lyle's death would be felt across the globe - a testament to the impact the boy from Shepparton had wherever he went. He thanked his many "friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals".

In some parts of northern Lombok, survivors can be seen standing on the road with cardboard boxes asking for donations and food.

BNPB's official death toll from Sunday's quake stood at 131 on Wednesday, although some Indonesian officials put the number at 347.

"I visited villages yesterday that were completely collapsed".

"A place we hope is fading for the missing".

Rescuers have found three bodies and also managed to pull one man alive from the twisted wreckage of the mosque, reduced to a pile of concrete and metal bars, with its towering green dome folded in on itself.

Wiranto said the government will develop a plan to rebuild communities on Lombok, which like its more famous neighbour Bali is a popular tourist destination with powder-white beaches, mountains and a lush interior.

United's Portuguese coach has criticised the Frenchman a million times, even when he showed glimpses of his best in the World Cup. The only thing that was not good was that I was not happy at working without the majority of my players [due to the World Cup]".

Thousands of tourists have left Lombok since Sunday, fearing further earthquakes, some on extra flights provided by airlines and others on ferries to the neighbouring island of Bali.

Some evacuees have complained of being ignored or experiencing long delays for supplies to arrive at shelters.

While exchanging messages on Facebook about the quake, many Indonesian speakers used the word "selamat", which has several meanings including "safe", "unhurt" or "congratulations" depending on the context. "I'm very anxious, we need help here".

'People are always saying they need water and tarps, ' he said, adding they were also looking for people with untreated injuries.
