A 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Indonesia this week, forcing many people to escape their homes and buildings.
Gary went on Twitter yesterday (August 5) to thank fans for their messages of concern, after a massive earthquake hit near to where he and his family are holidaying.
He reassured fans that he and his family are safe after the earthquake struck Lombok.
Thank you for your concern - we’re all fine - a bit shaken up— Gary Barlow (@GaryBarlow) August 5, 2018
“Thank you for your concern - we’re all fine - a bit shaken up," he tweeted.
He had previously been sharing photos and videos from his break in Bali, including footage of him practising yoga.
The practice of yoga and meditation brought me to this place. From this peaceful spot the wind whispered to me. “Go forward young warrior for your journey has brought you 6000 miles to here. Relax, lay down your weapons and make sure you have a pina colada sometime soon” I thanked the wind for its wise words and continued on my quest #bali
I’ve been limiting my tech to an hour a day while I’m on holiday. Surprisingly it’s more than enough. At first I was amazed the World hadn’t ended. I can’t deny I love the feeling of unbuckling from the Digital World. I feel like as time goes by it’s consuming me more and more. It’s a fabulous doorway to all my favourite things: Music - health - recipes - contacting friends. But The flip side is also a beautiful thing. Enjoying my surrounding and the people within it.
The quake was 10.5 kilometres (6.5 miles) deep and struck near Loloan. The Indonesia Red Cross later reported that four of its volunteers were injured, and had been transported to a hospital.
A tsunami warning had been issued, but it has since been lifted.
