Papua New Guinea dispatched assessment teams Wednesday to get a full picture of the damage caused by a violent 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck an island chain off the north coast overnight. An AFP reporter and residents on New Britain said electricity was still out and radio stations off air some 12 hours after the quake, but there appeared to be no major structural damage or loss of life. 'We didn't really have that much damage thank goodness, just ornaments falling down and that kind of thing,' said Ellen Morgan, a manager at Kokopo Beach Bungalows.
