A 7.1 Magnitude earth quake struck 195km off the east of Tonga. Pretty big quake for no tsunami warning.

This is the same location where countries have done nuclear testing in the past. Interesting that New Zealand and the other major pacific countries issued no Tsunami warning with such a massive earthquake in the area. 33km is not so deep.

not every earthquake casues a tsunami though, it needs very specific conditions

not every snow fall makes an avalanche
