Tidal waves whipped up by a mighty earthquake came crashing down on the coastal villages of New Guinea and its surrounding islands Saturday, sweeping hundreds of houses out to sea. At least 10 people were killed, and the death toll was expected to rise. One town alone lost 600 houses. Some waves towered an estimated 21 feet high, authorities said. The quake registered at least a magnitude 7 and by some accounts as high as 8. The quake hit at 2:59 p.m. Saturday.
