An earthquake of 7.1 magnitudes struck the Kermadec Islands locale in New Zealand on Thursday, the US Geographical Overview (USGS) said.
The quake rocked the Kermadec Islands district, which lies north of the country, in the long early stretches of Thursday. USGS added that the quake was assessed at a profundity of 10 km (6.21 miles).
The US Tsunami Warning System gave a tsunami warning for neighbouring, uninhabited islands in a 300-km span.
In any case, the Public Crisis board Organization said there was no tsunami danger for New Zealand.
The Kermadec Islands lie upper east of the New Zealand capital and measure around 13 square miles. The volcanic island is regularly shaken by tremors, as indicated by The Mirror.
New Zealand is inclined to earthquakes as it is situated on the limit of two of the world’s major structural plates-the Pacific Plate and the Australian Plate.
