At least 14 people have died after yesterday’s powerful earthquake caused landslides in a remote region of Papua New Guinea (PNG), officials say. The 7.5-magnitude quake rattled villages and a large gold mine in the country’s Enga province on Monday morning. There are unconfirmed reports that the death toll could be as high as 30, with details of “extensive” damage emerging. The tremor caused ExxonMobil to shut its $19bn (€15bn) liquefied natural gas plant, PNG’s biggest export earner. A number of buildings collapsed and roads were blocked by the landslides. Some phone lines were also cut, Reuters news agency reports.

Volcanos

Philippines

Intense lava fountains shot like fireworks up to 700 metres into the air above Mayon, the Philippines’ most active volcano, on Tuesday as showering debris turned morning skies dark and spread fear among anxious residents.

More than 40,000 people have already fled since smoke and ash started spewing from the mountain, with scientists warning of the danger of an explosive eruption and authorities urging people not to be complacent.

Mayon shot out a five-kilometre-high (three-mile) ash column early Tuesday as a rain of fine debris brought daytime darkness in some areas, volcanologists and local authorities said. One person is believed to have been killed while 11 were injured.
