Lae, UNITECH Campus, PNG / not felt: I did not feel this earth quake. I live about 700 km away from the epicenter in the Bismarck Sea. About three weeks ago we felt two big ones occurring in less than two minutes apart from each other. The second was shorter than the first. Some hours later Mt Tavurvur in Rabaul erupted causing damage to Rabaul town and the North Coast area. Rabaul town was destroyed in the 19th September 1994 twin volcanic eruption.
