An earthquake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale has struck off the Vanuatu archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.
The US Geological Survey said it struck in the centre of Erromago, the fourth largest island, which has a population of just under 2,000 people.
However, its depth of 124.4 miles would have dampened its effect, it said.
Situated to the east of Australia, the island chain is in the so called “Ring of Fire”, which is prone to earthquakes.
