>> A magnitude 6.2 aftershock rocked Indonesia's Lombok on Thursday sparking fresh panic on the topical tourist island. The powerful aftershock caused buildings to collapse and sent volunteers running in fear. They've been out working on the aftermath of Sunday's 6.9 quake. In the past two weeks, more than 150 have been killed in a series of tremors.
Reuters correspondent Kanupriya Kapoor was in northern Lombok when the aftershock struck.>> We just felt a huge aftershock not too long ago. It was definitely the biggest that we've had in the past few days. There are not a lot of buildings that are left standing here in the north of Lombok.
And I saw a few more that came crashing down because of this last earthquake. I was in a car on the road and we had to stop and run into an open field as everything around us was swaying pretty hard for about ten seconds.>> In recent days, thousands of houses have been damaged and tourists have fled.
Panic broke out at Bartley Airport Thursday as the shock was felt.>>
> Officials warn a humanitarian crisis is looming on Lombok island where thousands have been left homeless and in desperate need of clean water, food, medicine and shelter. About three quarters of the island's rural north have been without electricity.
>> Several smaller aftershocks in the past few days. And it's these kinds of tremors that are making people very scared to sleep indoors right now. And a lot of people here in the north of Lombok have lost their homes entirely, so they have nothing to return to anyway.
Thousands of people have had to move into temporary shelters. And aid is starting to come in quite slowly but it is coming in to the hardest hit areas now.>> The population's still traumatized by Sunday's deadly quake. They'll be on edge that the next tremor could strike at any moment.
