WASHINGTON, May 31, 2010 (Reuters) — A magnitude 6.4 quake struck east of India's Andaman Islands and triggered a local tsunami warning, the U.S. Geological Survey and Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported on Monday.

USGS report

No reports of damage yet.
This is at least the 4th strong earthquake over a 6.0 in the last 2 years at this location.

This is still breaking and not much news on it yet as far as I can find.

This quake comes almost 2 months to the day of another 6.4 earthquake in the same place on March 30th, 2010.
