    Strong 6.5-magnitude earthquake hits off coast of Papua New Guinea

    Debate Politics: BREAKING NEWS
    Not good, not GOOOOD!!!!

    A STRONG 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck beneath the sea off Papua New Guinea today, US seismologists said.
    There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the quake, which hit at 4.37 am local time at a depth of 43km some 120km west of the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, according to the US Geological Survey.
    "Earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts located within 100km of the earthquake epicenter," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre, based in Hawaii, said in a statement.
    There was no risk of a destructive widespread tsunami from the quake, which was also 248kmfrom Chirovanga in the Solomon Islands, the center said.
    Papua New Guinea, which is mired in poverty despite rich mineral deposits, sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates.

    You let things rattle you too easily, Noodle. You should try to relax a little.

    Meh i don't know, kind of like when the evil man always says in the movies he'll blow up the world at midnight... But it's never explained where he is.... So if he tells you that in japan, but you're in England, well you really have less time then you think...

    If it does happen I hope it is awesome and I am doing something awesome. It would be lame for the world to just go poof while on the toilet.
