A 7.6-magnitude earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean's Vanuatu Islands region early Sunday, prompting a tsunami warning for the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake struck 135 kilometers (85 miles) west of the island of Tanna, Vanuatu and 1,740 kilometers (about 1,100 miles) off Australia's eastern coast just after midnight local time (8:16 a.m. ET).

I think the Tsunami warning may be getting lifted soon.

There have been a lot of large earthquakes in the past two weeks.

Really feels like there has been a rise in earthquake activity recently although the USGS stats says otherwise.

In saying that, there have been a lot of earthquakes happening in New Zealand that haven't been showing up on their maps when they happen.

We had two this week in the 4/5 range and its not shown on the Earthquake maps?

Im probably alone in this but...

I HATE these earthquake/tsunami threads that end up being canned.

If only people would not tack on to them after the fact - I mean this.

PosterA - Tsunami Alert.
PosterX - It will fizzle
PosterY - Nah, I read that too! Bad times.
PosterA - Oh it fizzled. NM

PosterB - Tsunami Alert.
PosterX - It will fizzle.
PosterY - ZOMG - 10 billion people died, this is BAD!!!
PosterB - CRIKEY!

They're all under the "Alert" thing..

Wish there was a way to ignore the alerts, and just get the fruit of a situation.

Fizzle or CRIKEY!

Eh, Im just ranting, christmas was yesterday for me, so Im in a boxing mood...

Oo

Why I oughta... *Shakes fist at monitor, throws an empty box at it*

We just had an earthquake in NZ about an hour ago in Christchurch. 4.9 but its not shown on the earthquake map.

There is another 4.9 quake that is shown on the earthquake map at the top of NZ but this happened long before.

they issued a tsunami warming for sydney coast line and further down east about 4-5 months ago now but again nothing happened no warnings and off memory skynews didnt have anything on it either. It was later cancelled. Curious to know how these are generated, if it earthquakes fair enough but if a warning is issued then nothing is done and no one knows then what if the tsunami hit no one would be prepared?
Kinda worrying if you think about it!

I too feel there's a rise in Earthquakes. I started to monitor them on the USGS website, but stopped because I saw it was corrupted and falsifying data. I don't have concrete proof, but I can remember seeing some quakes that were later deleted from the database, or quakes (particularly in the Gulf of Aden) that were simply not listed. Who can you trust, really?
