- No word on if this has caused a tsunami.
Of course being in the water is always of concern it can but I think that involves the depth and I don't know about this depth being of concern
Not on land so no damage

Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre, which measured the earthquake at 7.2, said there was no tsunami threat to Australia as a result of the earthquake.

"powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake has struck in the southern Indian Ocean, but there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.

The shallow tremor struck at 6.24am on Saturday (09:24 AEDT), about 1020km east-northeast of Heard Island and McDonald Islands, the US Geological Survey says.

The epicentre was at the Southeast Indian ridge, a tectonic plate boundary located along the seafloor of the southern Indian Ocean.

Don't know if you're following Ben Davidson from SO but every time he's getting pretty close with his predictions. Even now with his current earthquake index on high alert.
