The quake was also felt in Surabaya, the capital of East Java province, which is about 200 km from Situbondo, the nearest town to the quake epicentre. The U.S. Geological Survey said it had a 6.0 magnitude.
Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for Indonesia's disaster agency BNPB, wrote on Twitter that several houses were also damaged in the quake that shook Bali and East Java.
It said "the quake was felt quite strongly by people in Sumenep and Situbondo for 2-5 seconds".
Possibly 5,000 people are buried in obliterated parts of the city and its surroundings where the force of the quake liquefied the soil and sucked houses into the earth. "In other areas the quake was felt to be moderate".
"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, several kilometres from where the International Monetary Fund and World Bank are holding their annual meetings this week.

Central Sulawesi was devastated when hit by a 7.5 magnitude quake last month which killed nearly 2000 people with hundreds more still missing.
"The victims died after being crushed by a collapsed building", BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement. More than 80,000 people are living in temporary shelters or otherwise displaced, he said. "The victims were sleeping when the natural disaster suddenly hit and caused the house to collapse so the victims could not escape".
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said waves less than 0.3 meter high could be expected on coastlines in Papua New Guinea and neighboring Solomon Islands.
Memorials will be constructed in hard-hit neighbourhoods such as Balaroa and Petobo, he said.
"People are traumatized. They don't want to go back" to those places, Mr. Nugroho said.
After making a rare appeal for global assistance, Indonesia is now trying to limit foreign involvement in the disaster relief effort. Nugroho said there's no need for global aid other than the four priorities identified by Indonesia. Groups that sent foreign personnel to the disaster zone are "advised to retrieve their personnel immediately", according to those guidelines.
