A sudden earthquake occurred late night in Papua New Guinea.
The US Geological Survey said that this powerful earthquake was recorded at about 7.5 magnitude in the Burkera region of Egan Province, about 35 km deep by the sea and 90 km away.
People were sheltered on the roads due to the sudden earthquake hitting the houses. After a while the situation is smooth.
Some of the places on the island have been affected. But the damage has not disclosed details. Furthermore, officials said no tsunami warning was left.
On the island of Papua New Guinea in the past year, a tsunami hit three times due to the 7-magnitude earthquake that hit the bottom of the sea in 1998, resulting in an estimated 2,100 deaths.
