BANGSAL, Indonesia (AP) — Rescue teams are searching for missing villagers on Indonesia's Lombok island after it was hit by a powerful magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Sunday night. More than 130 people have been confirmed dead and nearly 1,500 have been hospitalized with serious injuries. Volunteers and rescue personnel are erecting temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless. The quake was the second to rock Lombok in a week and also shook its more famous neighboring island, Bali.
