    A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck a very remote, mountainous portion of Papua Province, Indonesia at 1:42 p.m. local time (12:42 a.m. EDT) Saturday afternoon, according to the USGS.

    There has been a report of weak shaking near the provincial capital of Jayapura, but there have been no reports of injuries or damage.

    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said early Saturday that a Pacific-wide tsunami was not expected.

    The earthquake was centered 46.7 miles (75.1 km) below the ground.
