Displaced people are spread across 121 evacuation centres across North Lombok, East Lombok, West Lombok and Mataram City. The number of recorded deaths has reached 259 people. The earthquake has also damaged 64,534 houses and 458 schools as well as a number of public facilities such as hospitals, mosques, and health clinics.
2. BNPB reported that there are a number of different data on the death toll and emphasized that the official data are those from BNPB and BPBD West Nusa Tenggara. BNPB emphasized that during the initial and necessarily confusing period of emergency response, differences of data are common. BNPB is working with ministries/institutions and local government to synchronize the data. BNPB Command Post and Emergency Operations Centre (EOC or Pusdalops) BPBD West Nusa Tenggara are still verifying the data.
3. BMKG reported a total of 362 aftershocks until 9 August at 13:05 hrs among which were 18 significant earthquakes. The last large aftershock recorded was of 6.2 M with the epicentre at 16 kilometres deep and 13 km northeast of Mataram City. People are encouraged to remain calm in the face of ongoing shocks.
4. In consultations with BNPB today clarity was provided on the Government’s position on receipt of international assistance. As noted yesterday BNPB encourages stakeholders both from local NGOs and community organizations not to invite their international partners for emergency response in Lombok, but has no objection to assistance and financial contributions being channelled through the Indonesian Red Cross Society, national NGOs and civil society organisations.
