    A series of earthquakes destroyed communities on the island of Lombok, Indonesia, two weeks after a 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit the island, leaving at least 436 people dead.

    A video filmed by a drone shows the aftermath of a series of earthquakes that had struck the Indonesian island of Lombok on Sunday, causing power outages and leaving five dead.

    The jolts, which included a massive 6.9-magnitude earthquake, reduced local villages to rubble, knocking roof tiles off homes and even destroying some houses.
