A magnitude 7.0 earthquake has struck remote New Britain island in Papua New Guinea, the United States Geological Survey said, though there were no immediate reports of damage.

The quake hit about 200km (125 miles) south-west of the town of Rabaul at a depth of almost 40km, just before 7am local time (2100 GMT Wednesday).

“We felt the earthquake a bit, but it was not too strong,” constable Roy Michael told Reuters by phone from Rabaul police station.
