The death toll from a devastating quake on the Indonesian island of Lombok jumped to 319 Thursday, as strong aftershocks triggered panic among traumatised survivors waiting for aid in the worst-hit regions.

The latest quake on Thursday was felt strongly on the island and followed a 6.9 quake on Sunday that killed at least 131 people and damaged thousands of houses.

Officials said the quake's epicentre was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami.

This is a developing story.

He also says they're continuing to look for people with untreated injuries. The announcement came after an inter-agency meeting was called to resolve wildly different figures from different agencies.

Both seismic events struck in Lombok's north, a more residential and less developed part of the island than the resort-filled south. "Some buildings were damaged further because of this quake".

Indonesian authorities are appealing for food, clean water and medical help for the more than 156,000 people forced from their homes and 1,477 severely injured and in need of medical care.

Evacuees at a shelter in northern Lombok's Tanjung district ran out onto the road crying and screaming, an AFP reporter at the scene said.

Witnesses have reported buildings collapsing in the latest series of tremors to hit the island - following Sunday's fatal natural disaster in Lombok.

Aid began reaching isolated areas of the Indonesian island struggling after a powerful natural disaster, while rescuers doubled down on efforts to find the dead, pulling another body from the rubble.

The Indonesian Red Cross said it's focusing its relief efforts on an estimated 20,000 people in remote areas in the island's north where aid still has not reached.

Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said there are reports of other deaths but they still need to be verified.

The military said it sent five planes carrying food, medicine, blankets, field tents and water tankers.

A July 29 quake on Lombok killed 16 people.

Indonesia is located on the Pacific "Ring of Fire". "Our hearts go out to the people affected by the quake".
