An natural disaster of 6.0 magnitude shook hotels where International Monetary Fund delegates were attention a summit, on Thursday, killed three people after a quake-tsunami which killed more than 2,000 elsewhere in the archipelago, Indonesia.

According to The Guardian, Indonesia's disaster agency is planning to clear some of the worst-hit areas and turn them into memorials and parks.

The nighttime quake was centred at sea, 55 kilometres northeast of Situbondo city.

The US Geological Survey says the quake hit at 18:44 UTC, which was 1:44 AM local time.

Indonesia's disaster agency says 3 people were killed on Madura Island, off Java Island, after buildings collapsed while residents were sleeping.

Indonesia sits along the world's most tectonically active region, and its 260 million people are vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. People poured out of their houses.

AN quake has struck about 40km off the northeast coast of Bali but there are no reports of major damage yet.

"The quake didn't trigger any tsunami for sure", Dwikorita Karnawati told AFP.

The magnitude-7.5 quake and powerful tsunami killed at least 2,000 people on the island of Sulawesi.

Indonesia is still reeling after the natural disaster and ensuing tsunami that struck the island in late September.

Almost 88,000 people were displaced and many living in crude shelters in the hills around Palu.

It struck the island of New Britain this morning, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there is now a threat of a tsunami.

The national disaster agency's spokesman, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, told a news conference that the official search and rescue effort was extended by a day and would end Friday.

"I am so sad, as a mother losing your own child, it is definitely saddening", she said. "They asked to be relocated to another place and a house made for them".

Indonesia has accepted aid from 18 countries, despite the government's previous reluctance to welcome foreign assistance, partly because of fears it would be seen as incapable of handling disasters.

"It certainly seems like the Indonesian government is wanting to ensure they can control which agencies are actually coming in to assist", Mr Forsyth said.

A few foreign aid workers have been in the disaster zone, including a team from the group Pompiers Humanitaires Francais that searched for survivors, but they have spoken of difficulties in getting entry permits and authorization.
