Cape Town - Chrissy Teigen has shared her shock and worry in real time during a powerful and deadly earthquake in Indonesia with her social media followers.

The quake killed at least 91 people on the tourist island of Lombok, about 50 miles (80.5km) from Bali. A brief tsunami warning went into effect but was later lifted.

The model, along with singer-husband John Legend and their two children, felt the shaking on neighbouring Bali on Sunday.

"Bali. Trembling. So long," Chrissy tweeted to her 10.6 million followers.

In another tweet, she wrote: "Oh man. We are on stilts. It felt like a ride. 15 solid seconds of "hooooooly shit this is happening."

The aftershocks unnerved Chrissy, too.

"I'm either still trembling or these little quakes won't stop I'M TRYING TO BE NORMAL HERE," she wrote.

The 32-year-old let her followers know she, John and the kids are safe and added that they are "thinking of everyone" around them.

Knowing her tweets would garner attention, Chrissy tried to revert the media towards helping those directly affected by the quake in a final post.

"Please don’t make anymore news stories mentioning us. Talk about those in danger and share information to help those in need," Chrissy pleaded.
