7.3 just struck, off-shore Papau New Guinea

will try and follow up with tsunami info

USGS link

ETA: at least its deep at 50.7 km, hopefully that will help with not generating too large of a tsunami.

link to tsunami monitoring

So far it appears to only be a warning for local to the quake

The seer size of the quake, and the location, low depth, that close to shore, looks like it could create a great wreak of a wave man!!!

Oh boy, I hope that's deep enough to not cause much in the way of problems. i think that island (Bougainville Island) nearest the quake has somewhere around 200,000 residents.

I saw what you wrote there before you axed it, Westcoast, you might be right:

M6.8 - 96km SSW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2014-04-11 08:16:51 UTC

The main quake was downgraded to a 7.1, so if this tiny gap between the main shock and aftershock holds, it fits with the foreshock rule

I had a dream the other night that the tectonic plates sunk due to the Earths core collapsing when the magnetosphere flipped.

Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm. However, on another thread I posted this, which, I think, is quite apt;

My guess is that the Earth's magnetic field is fluctuating, and these booming noises, which have been heard all over the world, are an artefact of the Earth's magnetic core which is currently slowing down due to the strain caused by the stretching of the magnetosphere. Meaning that it's not far away from flipping. I think you'll find that the places in which these booming noises are heard are where the magnetic forces intersect with the Earths crust.

Sorry, had to go to bed. It was after one am my time.

Looks like there have been a few 'after-shocks', but yeah; I'm not convinced yet that they might not be in for something bigger based the 'rule' of after-shock, foreshock sequences.

The next few days will tell, but hopefully there will be nothing more. I think this was downgraded to a 7.1, and I haven't heard of any damage, etc. but I honestly haven't had much time yet to check too much.
