Deep 6.4-magnitude quake strikes Fiji region: USGS

A 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck the Fiji region US Geological Survey said.



Wellington: A 6.4-magnitude earthquake
struck the Fiji region on Sunday, the US Geological Survey said,
but no tsunami warning was immediately issued.

The undersea quake hit 321 kilometres (200 miles) west
of Suva at a depth of 555 kilometres at 2:07 am (1407 GMT),
USGS said.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre which monitors the
region and issues bulletins in the event of a tsunami being
generated had no such warning in force.

The area lies on the Pacific "ring of fire", a highly
active tectonic zone that frequently experiences earthquakes
and volcanic eruptions.
