Both actress Teresa Palmer and model Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter while holidaying with their families in Bali last night to document their experience through the deadly 7.0 magnitude natural disaster which struck Lombok, Indonesia on Sunday.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said there were no reports at this stage of Australians being injured by the quake.

Lombok and Bali are famed for their pristine beaches and mountains, with local planning restrictions in both locations prohibiting construction above the height of coconut trees.
