Three killed as strong quake rocks Indonesia's Java, Bali

People in the eastern part of Java, Madura and Bali islands also reported they felt the natural disaster.

Several homes were also lost in Thursday's natural disaster, which affected parts of Bali and East Java. "People were sleeping but got woken up by it", Tonny Akbar Mahendro told AFP.

A woman named Davey, who took refuge in the parking lot of a Bali hotel, said: "Wow, that was really strong and it lasted a long time".

Some guests at the hotel in Nusa Dua, south of Bali's main global airport, briefly fled outside after the strong tremor shook the building.

"The quake was very big". I immediately woke up and took my little kids out of the house. "All my neighbours were also running".

"I felt the quake too", she told AFP.

Indonesia's disaster agency says it only needs tents, water treatment units, generators and transport from other countries as it responds to the Sulawesi quake and tsunami that killed more than 2,000 people. "We are also still gathering data from our team in East Java".

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for Indonesia's disaster agency BNPB, wrote on Twitter that several houses were also damaged in the quake that shook Bali and East Java.

"Everybody panicked and the entire village ran outside".

"We stayed outside until dawn", he told AFP.

The magnitude 6.0 natural disaster hit about 4am Bali time, according to the US Geological Survey.

The tremor comes after a 7.5-magnitude quake and subsequent tsunami struck off the Indonesian island of Sulawesi - around 1,000 kilometers northeast of Situbondo - last month, killing more than 2,000 people.

Thousands more remain missing since the twin disaster ravaged the city of Palu and surrounding areas.

In August, several major earthquakes on the island of Lombok, just east of Bali, caused widespread damage and killed hundreds of people.

Indonesia is situated in the Ring of Fire, an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur.
