Location of the earthquake near Rinjani and submitted "I-felt-it" reports
Following the strong magnitude 6.5 earthquake yesterday, which occurred right under the volcano, landslides and mudflows triggered by the quake damaged some of the access routes to the National Park and partially made them impassable.
According to new reports, a large number of hikers are currently trapped in the park, about 500 in the area of Segara Anakan and 60 in Batu Ceper.
Rescue efforts by helicopters and search teams are underway. The volcano itself does not seem to have been affected so far by the earthquake.
