The United States Geological Survey reported that an earthquake of magnitude 7.1 struck off Papua New Guinea today, 128 km south-south-west of Rabaul, at a depth of 61 km.

There were no immediate reports of damages or casualties.

Meanwhile, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake hit Papua New Guinea, followed by an even more intense aftershock measuring 7.1.

The US Geological Survey recorded the quakes a day after a 6.9 tremor shook the nation yesterday.

After the latest scare, people were warned of the possibility of a "hazardous tsunami", but that alert has now been lifted.
