Threat is over for NZ.

 

New Zealand's Civil Defence at first issued a tsunami warning for the whole of the country, but that was cancelled about 1.30am after analysis of the seismic data.

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology said there was no threat to its coastlines.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said later this morning that the tsunami threat in the Pacific had largely passed.

It said people near affected coastlines should remain alert and follow the instructions of local authorities.

Waves of less than a metre in height were observed at Tarekukure Wharf in Solomon Islands.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the earthquake.
