7.9 Earthquake hits New Ireland, Papua New Guinea.

The magnitude-7.9 quake struck 46 kilometres east of Taron in Papua New Guinea, the US Geological Survey said. The quake was deep, at 103 kilometres. Deeper earthquakes tend to cause less damage than shallow ones.

The USGS initially said the quake’s magnitude was 8.0, but later downgraded the strength.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there was a threat of a tsunami in Papua New Guinea and nearby areas. A tsunami measuring less than 1 metre hit the coast of the island of New Ireland shortly after the earthquake. There were no immediate reports of damage from the tsunami or the quake, though officials were still working to contact people on the island, he said.

The quake knocked items off shelves and caused a blackout in the town of Kokopo in northeastern Papua New Guinea, Taranu said.

Poland – An underground earthquake left at least three miners dead and five missing at the Rudna mine in Polkowice, south-western Poland, according to state media. The earthquake of magnitude 4.4 struck just after 9pm Tuesday local time, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was centred a shallow 10km (6.2 miles) underground, the USGS said, which would have magnified its effect at the mine belonging to state-run copper producer KGHM.
