"I felt it" reports:
Namatanai, New Ireland, PNG / MMI VI (Strong shaking): We live in a high set PNG-style wooden house on iron posts. We often feel earthquakes, but it has to be severe shaking before we run out of our house. This one was quite a bit stronger than we usually feel, and we all ran ourside. Trees were swaying severely, and water tanks sloshed for up to 30 minutes after the quake.
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
