A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.9 struck 157 km (98 miles) east of Rabaul in Papua New Guinea on Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported, prompting a warning about tsunami waves across parts of the archipelago.
“Tsunami waves have been observed,” the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) said, warning that waves reaching one to three metres above the tide level were possible along some of Papua New Guinea’s coastlines. It said any tsunami waves would hit within the next two hours.
The PTWC cancelled an earlier tsunami warning that encompassed Indonesia, the Solomon Islands, Pohnpei, Chuuk, Nauru, Kosrae and Vanuatu after the quake, which struck the New Ireland region of Papua New Guinea at a depth of 103.2 km.
