Unless there’s an enormous hole on the runway your flight will get in.

People are telling me that Bali is basically back to normal. However during the earthquake a family member who works in Legian described not being able to walk or run as the ground was rippling, she later headed over to Uluwatu which is on high ground. But according to other friends it's back to normal. But better check with the villa that all is ok there.

I’m in kuta and all back to normal. Didn’t see the ground rippling.

I haven’t felt any after shocks today

Lombok was striked by another huge earthquake on Sunday (5 Aug) morning at 7.0 M. Given tsunami warning but lifted soon after. Up 'till this morning, death toll reaches 82 pax, and abt 100+ aftershocks. Tremors felt in parts of Bali including this morning's 5.4M. So far Bali is safe, but please take extra precaution if visiting. Check with local authorities / via your hotel.

Bali is back to normal actually , you can come here and do anything as usual..

Just dont go to gilis or nusas for precaution...

Nobody can predict earthquake

I spoke with friends in Seminyak just now, they were at restaurant having dinner when earthquake struck.... they didn’t feel it and haven’t felt any aftershocks at all, she said everything seems normal.. We are heading to Seminyak on 14th August for two weeks, I am a bit nervous having two kids but we are on a huge faultline where we live in NZ so you can’t really live in fear and try to run away from Mother Nature... we will just be weary and if there is a shake get to higher ground!!!! This may be a stupid question but if there is a tsunami warning after a Lombok quake would it be for entire coastline of Bali or just eastern side??
