A powerful 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean on Friday, shaking an erupting underwater volcano off Tonga's main island and raising fears of increased lava and ash flows, officials said.
There were no immediate reports of injury or damage from the quake, which was felt more than 3,000km away in New Zealand .
A tsunami warning for islands within 1,000km of the epicentre was cancelled two hours later.
