On 17 March 2019, an earthquake measuring Mw  5.6 struck the island of Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.[1] The earthquake triggered a landslide, killing three and injuring more than a hundred.


The earthquake has its epicenter in East Lombok Regency, with a reported magnitude and depth of Mw  5.6 and 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS),[1] while the Indonesian Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) reported a magnitude of Mw  5.4 and a depth of 11 kilometres (6.8 mi). BMKG attributed the earthquake to a local fault in the vicinity of Mount Rinjani.[2] Aftershocks exceeding Mw  5.0 were recorded.[3][4]


The earthquake caused a landslide which struck a group of Malaysian tourists visiting a waterfall in East Lombok, killing two of them.[5] Additionally, a 14-year old boy from the local area was also killed by the landslide.[6] The Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management (BNPB) recorded 182 injuries - residents of East and North Lombok regencies, in addition to 26 Malaysian tourists.[3]


According to Indonesian Social Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita, over 4,000 houses in East Lombok Regency alone was damaged.[7] On the other hand, BNPB reported a smaller number of 525 damaged houses (with 2,108 affected residents).[3]
