Papua New Guinea is always having earthquakes. The country sits right on a fault line. Apparently PNG has experienced 13 earthquakes in the past year and 2 just this month! You can always see these effects in the roads here, with giant potholes that are caused from the earth shifting.
We had heard about them-but never experienced one for ourselves-until last night. It was a weird feeling…the house shook for a good 30 seconds and we just sat there looking at our clothes shift within the closet. Apparently it was a 5.0 that hit just south of the coastal city Lae which is about a 4 hour drive away from us. So I’m sure what we were feeling was just aftershocks. Pray for the villages and people effected most by these earthquakes!
