7.5 earthquake hits New Britain, Papua New Guinea.

A tsunami alert that warned of “hazardous” waves was issued for Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands after a powerful earthquake rattled the region late Tuesday. The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.5 quake was located about 28 miles northeast of Kokopo. The temblor was centered at about 6 miles, a shallow depth. After about 90 minutes the agency said the tsunami threat had largely passed and no waves had been observed, but that there were no sea level gauges in the area for measurement.

Yellowstone earthquake swarm slowing, but ongoing

Almost 770 earthquakes have been recorded in Yellowstone Park over the past two weeks — more than normal but not a sign of volcanic activity, scientists say. The swarm, which began June 12, is ongoing, though the frequency of earthquakes has slowed down a bit. Typical swarms comprise 10 to 50 quakes. So far, five quakes have measured in the magnitude 3 range and 64 in the magnitude 2 range. The other 699 have been measured at magnitude 1 or less. It seems like the quakes are tectonic in origin, there is no volcanic signature to any of the events.
