According to local estimates, some 5,000 people remain missing in Balaroa and the town of Petobo.

The magnitude 6.0 quake hit about 4am Bali time, according to the US Geological Survey.

Three people were killed and houses were damaged after a magnitude-6.3 quake off East Java province and Bali yesterday, rattling some hotels where delegates to the International Monetary Fund (IMF)-World Bank meetings are staying.

Indonesia's most populous Java island is next to the main tourist island of Bali, where the IMF-World Bank annual meetings are being held this week.

"I felt the quake for at least 30 seconds and I panicked".

"She is all I have left. People were sleeping but got woken up by it", Tonny Akbar Mahendro told AFP.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries in Bali and the summit proceeded Thursday uninterrupted. Even in these ones which are small fry compared to earthquakes and tsunami, we are quite often found wanting. Indonesian authorities said they will turn the areas most affected by the quake into memorial parks.

The conference centre was created to withstand seismic events, and participants had been told to remain there in the event of a quake. Australia's Tsunami Warning Center said its coastlines were not at risk.

"Wow, that was really strong and it lasted a long time", said a woman named Davy who took refuge in the parking lot of a Bali hotel.

The latest natural disaster to hit the stricken country on the Ring of Fire is located in the Bali Sea, with a depth of 10.4km.

The quake's epicenter was located in the sea at the depth of 12 km, at a distance of 161 km northwest of Denpasar, Bali.
