Magnitude 6.0 Earthquake hits near Bali
A few hours earlier, I received a call from my travel agent friends. I was told that the popular resort island of Bali was hit by a magnitude 6.0 earthquake 100 kilometers southwest of the island. It hit 35 km beneath the ocean floor.

The tremors sent people fleeing from their homes and hotels. It was reported dozens were injured mostly hit by fallen objects. Read more at http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8359636/bali-police-hq-evacuated-due-to-6-8-quake
There are no words on the travel advisory but since it is the earthquake is 100 kilometers southwest of the island, only the tremors shocked Bali. It is reported only a small number of buildings were affected by the tremors.
I had my experience with tremors while we were traveling in Phuket after the 2004 tsunami. To be frank, just stay calm on situation like this, panicking will make things worse.
We shall wait for more comprehensive reports on the tremors in the upcoming few days. We hope for fast recoveries for those who got injured during the tremors.
