A magnitude 7.0 earthquake has struck in a sparsely populated part of Indonesia's Papua province yesterday.
No tsunami warning was issued after the quake, which struck in the mountainous New Guinea interior shortly before 7am.
The US Geological Survey said the epicentre was almost 250 kilometres west of Papua's provincial capital Jayapura at a depth of 52 kilometres.
The quake was felt strongly but didn't last long, according to disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.
He said that two houses, a hospital and a warehouse in Kasonaweja city suffered minor damage and one person was missing after being swept away by a river.
Rescuers were still trying to reach the area closest to the epicentre.
Shaking was felt in Jayapura for a few seconds.
