A 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian tourist island of Lombok and rattled Bali on Sunday evening, killing at least 98 people. Responders warn the death toll could rise as they try to reach areas that remain inaccessible. The quake hit the northern part of Lombok at a depth of 6 miles. It’s the second quake to hit the island in a week: a temblor on July 29 killed 16 people and damaged hundreds of houses there.
