Any tsunami warnings for the area?
The last big quakes cause much damage mainly because of them.

Tsunami warning: New Zealand
Just watch Lunch time news New Zealand again under Tsunami warning expected arrival times NZST 2:00 pm to 5:00pm along both east coast and West coast
A SECOND major earthquake has hit Vanuatu, this time recording a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale.
The US Geological Survey reports the second quake struck 330km north-west of Santo, almost on top of the original 7.8 quake which struck at 22:08 local time (09:08 AEDT).
The second quake struck 10 minutes later at a depth of 35km.
MAGNITUDE 6.7 earthquake has struck south-east of the Sulu archipelago of the Philippines, the US Geological Survey said.
The epicenter of the quake, which struck at 05:41 local time (07.41 AEST) today, was located 297km south-east of Jolo on the Sulu archipelago.
The depth was 582km, the agency said.
Initially, the U.S. Geological Survey registered a 6.9 magnitude quake.
A tsunami warning has been issued for Papua New Guinea and island nations in the south-west Pacific after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake off Vanuatu.
The epicentre was 295km (180 miles) north-northwest of Vanuatu's largest island, Santo, at a depth of 35km (21.7 miles), the US Geological Survey said.
There have so far been no immediate reports of injuries of damage.
More than 170 people died last week when a tsunami triggered by an quake hit Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga.
Earlier on Wednesday, a 6.7-magnitude quake struck off the Philippines, but no tsunami warning was issued.
Shortly after the earthquake off Vanuatu struck at 2203 GMT, the Pacific Region Headquarters of the US National Weather Service said a tsunami warning was in effect for Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Fiji, Kiribati, Kosrae, Wallis and Futuna, and the Howland and Baker islands.
