Moderate earthquake under a dormant PNG volcano

Umboi volcano - Picture by Nasa and Wikipedia

Earthquake Report comment :
Moderate but shallow earthquake under Umboi Volcano on Unboi island in Papua New Guinea.
The nearest village in this otherwise almost entire wilderness area is Marli.
As this is a small village, houses are mostly constructed with natural products like wood. Even if they collapse, they won’t create a lot of injuries.

Wikipedia description of the nature paradise :
Umboi (also named Rooke or Siassi) is a volcanic island between the mainland of Papua New Guinea and the island of New Britain. It is separated from New Britain by Dampier Strait and has an elevation of 1,548 m. Umboi is a Holocene complex volcano with no historic eruptions. A complex volcano refers to the extensive assemblage of spatially, temporally, and genetically related major and minor volcanic centers with their associated lava and pyroclastic flows.
