There is no tsunami threat to Hawaii following a 7.5 magnitude quake near the Vanuatu Islands, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

Also, for those googling info on this quake, notice that many of the articles are from a 7.5 that hit the same region on Aug. 10, 2010, a year and 10 days ago. Odd. Similar small localized tsunami with that one too.

The quake hit at 3:55 a.m. local time. Estimations are there will be reports of light to moderate damage from the USGS.

Too early in the morning there, not a lot of information available as of yet.

Daaaaaaaaaaang. It's been awhile since we've seen a decent sized earthquake.

Tsunami Alerts??


Shouldn't Australia be more concerned with a tsunami and not Hawaii...
