Bali earthquake kills at least 3 people
The earthquake damaged buildings in Karangasem and Bangli regencies on the east of the island, the Bali Province Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) said in a statement Saturday.
Rescue efforts are continuing in Karangasem where people remain trapped in the ruins of a building. Seven people are seriously injured, and one person is dead.
Two people died in Bangli, where landslides caused by the quake blocked a road, hampering evacuation efforts.
BPBD is warning people to be prepared for potential aftershocks.
Bali reopened to fully vaccinated visitors from 19 countries this week -- a move aimed at boosting the island's tourist-dependent economy.
