Two magnitude 6 earthquakes struck Monday beneath Papua New Guinea's main island in the southwestern Pacific, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
According to the Red Cross, although the area has no major urban centers, around 670,000 people live within 100 km of the epicenter.
Last week's quake was one of the largest to hit the region in almost a century, triggering landslides, destroying buildings and disrupting communication lines.

"But we know that tens of thousands of people are reported as requiring humanitarian assistance".
In a statement, Darian Clark, the humanitarian duty officer at the Australian high commission in Papua New Guinea, said it "was the biggest quake in a hundred years and it spread 150 kilometers across the fault line".
