NO TSUNAMI THREAT from a 6.5 moment magnitude earthquake off of Vanuatu at 10:10 am HST – Sept 20, 2017. @NWS_PTWC

 The Vanuatu archipelago is in the so-called Ring of Fire and is prone to earthquakes. This BIG ONE earthquake comes some 4 hours after Japan was hit by a powerful M6.1 earthquake just 300km away from the Fukushima nuclear power plant, some 19 hours after a M6.1 quake struck New Zealand and 24 hours after the deadly M7.1 earthquake in Mexico.
