Wonder if the earthquake caused any changes to the reef?

I think unlikely, the earth quake was in the far north area, the south not really affected.

Wasn't sure how far the geographical effects reached.

I would have thought if the reef has risen or sunk at deserts then there would be reports of damage to buildings in the south.

Actually this is interesting

"Bali earthquake map: NASA map reveals Lombok earthquake CHANGED Indonesia's landscape
NASA has used new satellite data to produce a map of ground deformation on the resort island of Lombok following Sunday’s deadly earthquake."

From what i can tell there has been a 0.05 meter drop in the Dessert point region and south coast and super suck area of Sumbawa.

Im reading that as 5cm (50mm) drop, probably a slight improvement for deserts?

Didn't the reef at Nias rise about 1.8m during the Sumatra earthquake making it better ? And at the rate of subsidence it was going to take a couple of centuries for it to get back to original level. I am not sure if 5cm at Deserts will be noticeable, a slight improvement for SS though.

I don't know how factual this vid is?.....but it is interesting.

He predicts another quake in the South West Java region (near Turtles) in the next week of about high 6's, supposably based on recent earthquakes in Lombok and Mentawais and other Volcanic activity in the region.

Watched footage of it the day after the quake and it didn't look like much had changed.
