The US Geological Survey said the quake struck at 08:23 GMT, 420km (260 miles) north-west of the capital, Port Vila.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said the threat of tsunami waves had now mostly passed.

The USGS said the quake was fairly shallow - at a depth of about 35km (21 miles) - but no damage had been reported so far.

The quake, originally measured at 7.2, struck in the north of Vanuatu off Espiritu Santo.


Bigger, more frequent.  2012 is late!
