According to RSOE a 7.1 and a 8.0, could be the same just different readings, but definitely a big one, as it's in the ocean it could trigger a tsunami.

And there was also a 7.2 EQ near New Zealand?



A 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck in the South Pacific Ocean Tuesday morning, about 76 miles southeast of Raoul Island, New Zealand, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
There were no immediate reports of damage.
The quake hit near the eastern edge of the Australian tectonic plate, one of the most active seismic regions in the world, according to the USGS.

Weird how all is quiet, then all of a sudden 2 big ones around the same time in totally different parts of the world. It makes you wonder if earthquakes have "seasons" of a sort..

DId you see USGS downgraded the 7.1 in PNG down to a 6.9. They did that after the second shake, which was a 6.3.
Gosh, I saw the 7.1 and was hoping the pressure wouldn't continue to build!

Seriously, getting to higher ground cannot hurt. I would, even if nothing happens where you are...As pointed out above, better safe than sorry.
