The 1970 New Guinea earthquake struck the eponymous island and shocked the city of Madang on October 31. Causing between five and eighteen fatalities, it rocked the island and sent landslides cascading down steep hills into poorly reinforced wooden huts. The area that experienced the most powerful intensity extended 20 kilometers (12 mi) out from the epicenter. Underwater landslides caused minor tsunami over about 100 km of coast and severed underwater cables in several places.
