At least 347 people have been confirmed dead after a 6.9-magnitude quake struck off the coast of Indonesia, according to local media, citing an emergency official.

Rescuers intensified efforts Wednesday to find those buried in the rubble, with volunteers and rescue personnel erecting temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on the southern island.

Authorities are gathering information from family members with missing relatives to determine how many more people may have been in the buildings when they collapsed, national search and rescue agency spokesman Yusuf Latif told AFP.

Aid began reaching isolated areas of the Indonesian island struggling after a powerful quake, while rescuers doubled down on efforts to find the dead, pulling another body from the rubble. He says the agency has sent 20 water trucks to five remote areas, including one village of about 1,200 households.
