6.0 earthquake hits off Vanuatu coast

HONG KONG – A 6.0-magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of the Pacific Ocean island of Vanuatu late Thursday, April 14, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles) some 86 kilometers (53 miles) away from the town of Port Orly, USGS said. There was no immediate tsunami warning.

It was the 4th quake to hit the region in about a week, with a 6.9-magnitude earthquake striking off Vanuatu's Vanua Lava island last Thursday.

Vanuatu is part of the "Ring of Fire," a zone of tectonic activity around the Pacific that is subject to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. – Rappler.com
