“We are still doing an assessment to collect data of the impact of the earthquake,” he said.

“We urge people to stay calm and don’t panic.”

A Twitter client with the handle Indounik in the city of Ubud on Bali stated the earthquake was “strong enough to make me adopt the drop, cover & hold approach recommended to survive a quake”.

Marc van Voorst, another Twitter user, described the tremor as feeling like a “heavy truck on a train passing by at close range”.

He said there was no frenzy, despite the fact that his inn in the Uluwatu zone shook a considerable amount.
