It was said that people in Denpasar ran out of their houses in pajamas as soon as they felt the earth tremble.

The quake could also be felt in Lombok and Java, which are neighbouring islands as mentioned in a statement by Indonesia’s meteorology and geophysics agency.

Indonesia experiences frequent earthquakes and sometimes tsunamis as it is situated in the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Twitter users in the area have been reporting on the earthquake using the hashtags #bali #earthquake.
