A strong 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck Papua New Guinea on Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said, with seismologists warning there could be considerable damage.
The quake, just eight kilometres (five miles) deep, hit 19 kilometres east of the small town of Aitape on the Pacific nation's north coast, which has a population of around 8,000, at 08:55 am (2255 GMT Tuesday), the USGS said.
No destructive tsunami warning was issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center but it cautioned that earthquakes of this size could sometimes generate local tsunamis within 100 kilometres of the epicentre.
