A 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck off the Solomon Islands on Sunday, but did not pose a tsunami threat, the National Weather Service said.
The quake's epicenter was 60 miles (97 km) southwest of Kira Kira, the capital of the Makira-Ulawa province.
"Based on all available data, a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected and there is no threat to Hawaii," the weather service's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
Yula Jeffrey, a worker at a hotel in the Solomon Islands capital of Honiara, said the quake was powerful but the streets were largely calm.
The hotel, Solomon KitanoÂ Mendana Hotel, did not suffer any damage, he said.
The quake originally was reported as a 7.0-magnitude event, but was revised to 6.8.
