Papua New Guinea was shaken near Lae, Morobe Province, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.1 only 20 minutes ago, Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 78 km beneath the epicenter near Lae, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea, in the morning on Saturday 1 May 2021 at 10:40 am local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.

Weak shaking might have been felt in Lae (pop. 76,300) located 81 km from the epicenter.
