One little girl had her camera set on the table and was taking video when the earthquake happened.


The 6.0-magnitude quake rocked the main tourist district of Kuta for several minutes, said Endro Tjahjono from the Bali office of Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics Agency.
"There was panic -- everyone ran out of the buildings. When we returned to our office building, we saw some cracks on the wall and plaster had come off the walls," he told AFP.
Kuta's Sunset Road was hit hard, with hundreds of tourists fleeing from malls, restaurants and supermarkets.
"Hundreds of people ran onto the streets. It was chaos. So many people tried to drive off that the traffic came to a standstill," said Reno Permana, who works for a mobile phone service and ran from the third floor of his office building when the quake hit.
"Part of the wall on the Carrefour supermarket near my building came down, and tiles from the roof fell and smashed into the parking lot. A lot of the buildings are badly damaged, with windows smashed in."
Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic activity, and is frequently hit by earthquakes.
