Earthquake shakes South Pacific, there is a threat of Tsunami

The magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck the South Pacific on Wednesday about 400 km east of New Caledonia, according to the USGS. Although it occurred far enough from the ground not to cause earthquake damage, the large earthquake may have produced a dangerous tsunami for the South Pacific islands.

According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, dangerous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within the next three hours along the coasts of Vanuatu, New Caledonia, American Samoa, Fiji, Kermadec Islands, New Zealand, Tonga , Solomon Islands, Wallis and Futuna, Tuvalu and Niue.
