Earthquake strikes the Indonesian island of Bali injuring at least 50 people
A powerful earthquake has struck the Indonesian island of Bali injuring at least 50 people. The 6.1 magnitude earthquake caused panic and mayhem in the main tourist district of Kuta. Roofs collapsed at schools, hotels, homes and offices and several ancient temples along the coast were damaged. Australian tourists told the Herald Sun they ran for their lives in the streets as all the buildings were shaking. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 60 miles southwest of the island, but said it was not strong enough to trigger a tsunami.
