The islands of Bali and Lombok were struck by a hazardous 6.9 Mw earthquake on August 5. At least 98 people were reported dead while thousands of shocked residents and tourists have no place to stay.

An incident similar to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami might also be a potential risk for the Caribbean region, according to seismologists at the SSA 2018 Annual Meeting.
