5.5 earthquake 13 Aug 2:09 (GMT +10)

The German Geological Research Center (GFZ) reported a 5.5-magnitude earthquake in Papua New Guinea near Kandrian in West New Britain province 15 minutes ago. The earthquake occurred on Sunday, August 13, 2023, at 2:09 pm local time at a depth of 10 km. As seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their reports, the exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised over the next few hours or minutes.
Our monitoring service has identified a second report from RaspberryShake’s citizen-seismograph network, which lists the earthquake at magnitude 5.5.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the earthquake may not have caused significant damage, but a slight tremor in the epicenter area may have been felt by many.
Weak tremors may have been felt at Gondrian (pop. 1000), located 99 km from the epicenter.
