JAKARTA, Indonesia-A powerful aftershock sent thousands of residents of the Indonesian island of Lombok running into the streets and toppled buildings already weakened by Sunday's even stronger quake.

The Indonesian island of Lombok has been struck by another natural disaster days after a tremor that is thought to have killed more than 300 people.

As the aid effort stepped up, volunteers and rescue personnel erected more temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on Lombok by the magnitude 7.0 quake.

The tremor is the latest in a series of aftershocks to rock the Indonesian island which sits on the Ring of Fire in the Indian Ocean, after a deadly magnitude 6.9 quake struck on Sunday. It struck northwest of Lombok, which is close to Bali, but the agency said it would not cause a tsunami.

The first quake, a 6.9 magnitude event, killed almost 350 people, according to Indonesian state media.

A magnitude 5.9 aftershock on Thursday injured more than two dozen people, damaged buildings and caused a landslide that buried four people.

Officials said about three-quarters of Lombok's rural north had been without electricity since Sunday, although power had since been restored in most areas. The natural disaster felt very strong in Mataram, a city on Lombok's west coast, Susanto said. The agency says it is has not verified these other figures but expects the toll to climb.

A total of 164 people were now confirmed dead in the quake, Nugroho told AFP, with a further 1,400 seriously injured and more than 150,000 displaced.

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) said the death toll prior to the last aftershock, which measured 6.2 on the Richter Scale, was 131, while the NTB government said it reached 226.

Some villages were "completely collapsed", said a Red Cross official in Lombok, Christopher Rassi.

Wiranto, who goes by one name, said the government will develop a plan to rebuild communities on Lombok, which like its more famous neighbor Bali is a popular tourist destination with powder white beaches, mountains and a lush interior. He also said that search and rescue operations were ongoing but things weren't as smooth and they would like as the aftershocks added to the woes.

Other evacuees said they were subsisting on a diet of instant noodles and needed clean water and bedding.
