The powerful natural disaster sent thousands of Lombok residents and tourists scrambling outdoors, where many spent the night because strong aftershocks including one of 5.3-magnitude continued to rattle the island.
More than one thousand tourists were being evacuated from Indonesia's tiny Gili islands on Monday after a powerful quake struck neighbouring Lombok, killing 91 people and injuring hundreds.
Power and communications were severed in some areas, with landslides and a collapsed bridge blocking access to areas around the epicentre in the north. Thousands of homes and buildings were damaged and those displaced camped wherever they could - in sports fields and on roadsides, cobbling together ramshackle shelters and building campfires for warmth.
The island was already reeling from a magnitude 6.4 quake on July 29, which killed 16 people.
Two days after the quake, rescuers were still struggling to reach all the affected areas and authorities expected the death toll to rise.

"Lots of cracks, fallen doors", he wrote on Facebook.
