School Principal: 3 Bodies still buried under landslip

The aftermath of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake on Monday morning has caused big damages to properties and loss of lives.

Last night another 6.5 magnitude occurred causing more damage.

School Principal of Hela Multi-Purpose Training Institute, David Agobe, said they can still feel the earth shaking every after 5 to 10 minutes.

Mr Agobe said had made them drowsy while some children had fainted and a few vomitted.

He said three of his neighbours just outside Tari were buried under the ground and their bodies are yet to be recovered.

Agobe told EMTV News that there are a lot of bodies buried under the ground and are yet to be recovered.

Currently, they remain indoors.

People in the Southern Highlands are affected as well as parts of Hela.

Those in Enga, Western and Western Highlands province can also feel the smaller tremors.
