Earthquake Strikes Off Vanuatu

An earthquake, measuring magnitude 6.9, has struck off the coast of Vanuatu, after a similar-sized quake struck the same area on Sunday.

An earthquake of magnitude 6.9 struck northwest of the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said on Wednesday.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre did not issue a Pacific-wide tsunami warning.

A similarly-sized quake struck the same area on Sunday without causing any damage.
