WorthyNews: Strong quakes strike Papua New Guinea, Bali

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - Strong earthquakes struck Papua New Guinea and the Indonesian island of Bali on Thursday, but there were no immediate reports of major damage. The quake in Papua raised the possibility of a local tsunami, although authorities said there was no significant tsunami threat to Hawaii or the wider Pacific region.

The magnitude 7.0 quake in Papua New Guinea struck about 118 kilometers (73 miles) east of Kimbe, West New Britain, on the Pacific island nation. It was followed by aftershocks of magnitude 5.7 and 5.9.

Just over an hour later, a magnitude 6.3 quake hit farther northeast on the island. [ Source: CBS News (Read More...) ]
