Disaster officials in PNG's New Britain waiting for damage reports following earthquake

CD Disaster officials in PNG's New Britain waiting for damage reports following earthquake

"Disaster officials in Papua new Guinea's New Britain say they are waiting to hear reports of any damage from

Tuesday morning's strong earthquake.

The provincial Disaster office says the 6.8 quake was tectonic and not volcano-related, despite a recent volcanic eruption on the island.

The office's director Colonel Peter Baki says the epicenter of the 6.8 quake was in the exact middle of the island, a very remote area.

He says the province is in a "seismic crisis" with magna intrusion that is just 15 kilometres below the surface in the North of the island."
