Thousands of tourists are trying to get off Indonesia’s Gili Islands in the wake of a magnitude-6.9 earthquake which collapsed buildings.
One of them is Sebastiaan Evans, a British trader, who described his ordeal to the ABC as he waited for the Indonesian Navy to arrive.
He said the quake hit the islands just after 7:30pm (local time).
“Our swimming pool was shaking so much water was overflowing into our bedroom,” he said.
“There were thousands of people on that hill, waiting for more information.
“There were aftershocks, which caused people to scream and shout.”
He said he had to stay on the hill until 6:00am the next day.
