Indonesia's resort islands of Bali and Lombok were rocked by a magnitude 7.0 quake on Sunday, triggering panic among holidaymakers and residents. Its epicentre was about 2 km east-southeast of Loloan.

The latest quake, which triggered a brief tsunami warning, damaged buildings as far away as Denpasar on Bali, including a department store and the airport terminal, where ceiling panels were shaken loose, authorities said.

He said the quake was also felt in parts of neighbouring Bali island.

The quake struck off the north coast of Lombok island.

The natural disaster also triggered a tsunami warning for the area that since has been canceled, said Dwikorita Karnawati, head of Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency.

Video aired by Kompas TV showed patients being evacuated from a hospital in Bali's Tabanan district.

Much stronger than the last one in Lombok that we felt in Bali'.

Iwan Asmara, an official from the disaster mitigation agency, said residents were fleeing from their homes in a panic to move to higher ground.

A handout photo made available by the US Geolocial Survey on Sunday shows an intensity map of a 7.0-magnitude quake on Lombok island, Indonesia.

Indonesia, one of the most disaster-prone nations on earth, straddles the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and numerous world's volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.
