The Pacific wave Warning Centre said: “Based on the preliminary earthquake parameters, dangerous tsunami waves are attainable for coasts located at intervals 300 kilometers of the earthquake epicenter.”

No indication of a tsunami threat to different countries but Fiji, Samoa, and also the Solomon Islands, might experience minor sea-level fluctuations.

The centre added; “We are assessing whether or not the M7.4 KERMADEC ISLANDS REGION earthquake poses any tsunami threat to New Zealand,” New Zealand civil defense said.

“If a tsunami has been generated, it’s not going to arrive in New Zealand for a minimum of 2 hours.”

“Based on current info, the initial assessment is that the earthquake is unlikely to have caused a tsunami which will create a threat to NZ.”

Recently they said: “We have already issued a BEACH and MARINE tsunami warning following the M7.4 Kermadec Islands region earthquake.”

The Kermadecs are part of the so-called Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’.
