Lae - A strong 6.3 magnitude earthquake has rocked the eastern part of Papua New Guinea. There have been no immediate reports of injuries, deaths or significant damages.
On Saturday, the United States Geological Survey showed that a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocked the nation of Papua New Guinea. The magnitude of the quake is still preliminary and could be upgraded or downgraded in a matter of moments.
The earthquake had a depth of 20.5 miles and was located 11 miles northeast of Lae, New Guinea and 192 miles north of Port Moresby.
There have been no immediate reports of any fatalities, injuries or significant damages in the region. No tsunami alert has been issued by the federal authorities.
Papua New Guinea was rocked earlier this month by a 6.0 magnitude earthquake and near the end of March, a 6.2 magnitude quake rocked the country.
