7.3 quake hits Papua New Guinea, Pacific
December 14, 2011
An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 hit south southwest of Lae in Papua New Guinea, 75 miles deep.
It lasted for two to three minutes.
The whole building moved. The Christmas tree moved, we all moved, people are very shaken.
It's in a mountainous area so there may be issues of landslides

6.2 magnitude earthquake strikes region of Papua New Guinea
March 15, 2012  
A 6.4-magnitude earthquake (6.2 USGS) struck Papua New Guinea Thursday, the US Geological Survey reported, but a tsunami warning was not issued and seismologists said “no major human impact is expected.” The quake hit the New Britain region at 7:13 am (2113 GMT Wednesday) at a depth of 48 kilometers (30 miles), 204 kilometers southwest of the main city in the area Rabaul and 598 kilometers from national capital Port Moresby. Geoscience Australia, which put the depth at 103 kilometers, said the quake may have been felt as far away as Port Moresby but “no major human impact is expected. It seems to be in a relatively isolated area with small villages to the south,” seismologist Emma Mathews told AFP. “It definitely would have been felt but earthquakes regularly hit these areas and people living there are used to these types of events.” Quakes of such magnitude are common in the New Britain region of impoverished PNG, which sits on the so-called “Pacific Ring of Fire,” a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates. A giant tsunami in 1998, caused by an undersea earthquake or a landslide, killed more than 2,000 people near Aitape, on the country’s northwest coast. -AFP

6.6 magnitude earthquake rattles Papua, New Guinea
March 22, 2012 – GOROKA, Papua New Guinea — A strong earthquake struck the island of New Guinea in Papua New Guinea on early Thursday morning, seismologists said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The 6.6-magnitude earthquake at 8:15 a.m. local time (2215 GMT Wednesday) was centered about 63 kilometers (39 miles) east-southeast of Goroka, the capital of the Eastern Highlands Province in the Oceanian country. It struck about 105.9 kilometers (65.8 miles) deep, making it an earthquake with intermediate depth, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the region, but the USGS estimated that approximately 147,000 people near the epicenter may have felt ‘strong’ shaking which could result in light to moderate damage. Another 3.5 million people may have felt light to moderate shaking. Because the earthquake struck fairly deep and on land, no tsunami warnings were issued. “A destructive tsunami was not generated based on earthquake and historical tsunami data,” the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in a bulletin. Earthquakes in the mountainous nation of Papua New Guinea, which is on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, do rarely cause damage or casualties as most structures in the region are light and flexible. This allows them to bend, rather than snap when a major earthquake happens. In December 2011, a powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck near the town of Wau in Morobe province. The earthquake was felt as far away as the capital Port Moresby, about 221 kilometers (137 miles) south-southeast of the epicenter, but there were no reports of damage or casualties. In July 1998, a powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck just off the north coast of the country’s island of New Guinea, causing a landslide which resulted in a local tsunami. The disaster left at least 2,183 people killed and thousands more injured. –Channel 6 News

6.2 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Papua New Guinea
April 6, 2012
A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea early Saturday, the US Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage and no tsunami warning was issued. The quake hit at 02:15 am (16:15 GMT) 150 kilometers (93 miles) east of Rabaul, in Papua New Guinea’s East New Britain province and 885 kilometers northeast of the capital Port Moresby at a depth of 85 kilometers. Quakes of such magnitude are common in impoverished Papua New Guinea, which sits on the so-called “Pacific Ring of Fire“, a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates. Last month, the country was hit by a 6.7-magnitude earthquake but while the tremor was widely felt it was too deep, at 105 kilometers, to cause much damage. Earlier in March, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck the New Britain region of the country, with no damage or injuries reported. A giant tsunami in 1998, caused by an undersea earthquake, killed more than 2,000 people near Aitape, on the country’s northwest coast. –Times of India

Two earthquakes rock Indonesia
April 21, 2012
A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked Indonesia's Papua region on Saturday, sending panicked residents running from their homes and schools, officials said.
Authorities said there was no threat of a tsunami, and that the worst-hit area was the town of Ransiki in western Papua, where students attending morning classes ran from school buildings that shook for around a minute.
"We've had reports of mostly superficial damage to buildings, but two houses have caved and a church wall has collapsed," Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) official Yulson Sineri, told AFP.

"There are so far no reports of victims, but there has been some damage to buildings in Ransiki," he said.
The quake struck at 10:16 am (0116 GMT) at a depth of 30 kilometres (19 miles), 83 kilometres southeast of Manokwari, according to the USGS.
Authorities said the quake was felt in various parts of the West Papua province, on the western tip of New Guinea island.

Magnitude 6.7 quake strikes off Papua New Guinea, Pacific
March 10, 2013
 (Reuters) - A magnitude 6.7 earthquake has struck off Papua New Guinea's north coast city of Lae, the United States Geological Survey said on Monday.
The quake, about 150 km (95 miles) east of Lae, was initially recorded at a depth of about 20 km, although that figure was later revised to 87 km. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no Pacific-wide tsunami threat.

Plastic in 'Great Pacific Garbage Patch' increases 100-fold
May 2012
 The amount of plastic trash in the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" has increased 100-fold during the past 40 years, causing "profound" changes to the marine environment, according to a new study.
Scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego found that insects called "sea skaters" or "water striders" were using the trash as a place to lay their eggs in greater numbers than before.

In a paper published by the journal Biology Letters, researchers said this would have implications for other animals, the sea skaters' predators -- which include crabs --  and their food, which is mainly plankton and fish eggs.
The scientists also pointed to a previous Scripps study that found nine percent of fish had plastic waste in their stomachs.

The "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" -- which is roughly the size of Texas -- was created by plastic waste that finds its way into the sea and is then swept into one area, the North Pacific Subtropical Convergence Zone, by circulating ocean currents known as a gyre.

7.2  earthquake Papua New Guinea
July 7, 2013
The quake occurred 110 kilometres northeast of the town of Taron on the island of New Ireland at 4.35am local time (0435 AEST).
It hit at a depth of 379 kilometres and no tsunami warning has been issued.

July 8, 2013 – PAPUA, NG - An earthquake measuring 7.2 magnitude struck deep below the sea east of Papua New Guinea on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The earthquake, which was 379 kms (235 miles) deep, struck 110 km (68 miles) northeast of the town of Taron, said the USGS. There was no tsunami warning. It was followed by a second, 6.8 magnitude earthquake on the country’s New Britain island, at 30 km (19 miles) northeast of the town of Kandrian at a depth of 62 km (39 miles), the USGS said. The 6.8 magnitude earthquake was later downgraded to a 6.6 magnitude event by the USGS.

Papua New Guinea Earthquake
16 Oct 2013 -  7.1-Magnitude Quake Hits Near South Pacific Country

A powerful earthquake rocked the South Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea on Wednesday, officials said.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake measured magnitude 7.1 and was located 65 kilometers (40 miles) west-southwest of Panguna in Papua New Guinea. It struck at 8:31 p.m. (1031 GMT) at a depth of 58 kilometers (36 miles), it said.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami was unlikely.
Earthquakes are common in Papua New Guinea. The country lies on the "Ring of Fire" — an arc of earthquake and volcanic activity that stretches around the Pacific Rim.
A magnitude-7.0 earthquake on the northern coast in 1998 generated a large tsunami that swamped several villages, killing about 2,200 people.

7.1 earthquake PAPUA NEW GUINEA
April 2014
– – A powerful magnitude 7.1 earthquake has struck off Papua New Guinea, US officials said. The US Geological Survey says the quake was measured at a depth of around 50 kilometers and was about 52 kilometers from the town of Panguna on Bougainville Island. A 6.7-magnitude aftershock has followed the quake off the island of Bougainville. “They would have gotten a strong shake across the island, and there’s the possibility of some damage,” David Jepsen from Geoscience Australia said. Residents in the northern town of Buka and the southern town of Buin say they felt the quake. A local journalist says two water tanks have been damaged near Buin. There have been no immediate reports of injuries or major damage. The Global Disaster and Coordination System has issued an alert for a small tsunami with a maximum height of 40 centimeters after the first quake. While the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre has ruled out the threat of a Pacific-wide destructive tsunami, Mr Jepsen says there is a possibility of a local tsunami in PNG. He says the depth of the quake could not be accurately defined except that it was under 50 kilometers. “If it’s really shallow like 10 (kilometers deep), there’s more possibility of (local) tsunami,” he said. –ABC News
