The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) has updated its latest but final prediction declaring the tsunami threat has passed away following a powerful earthquake only applies to the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea coasts.

While the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed, a 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck off the Papua New Guinea coast at 4:30 am UTC (11:30 pm EST). Though, tsunami waves reach 0.3 to 1 meters above the tide level so may have some possible threats for coasts of Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, other locations remain safe now, PTWC published statement.

PNG’s Geophysical Observatory Office in Port Mores, Chris McKee told no report comes from the location where a 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck off it means everything is fine so far.

Although, Papua New Guinea is still on risks as it is infamous for seismic activity because of friction between tectonic plates, it is quite in danger to quakes.

The U.S. Geological Survey has also published a report, according to them an earthquake of 7.9 to hit approximately 25 miles (41 km) west-northwest of Panguna, Papua New Guinea, at a depth of 136.0 km.
