7.0 earthquake strikes near Vanuatu in South Pacific

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck Sunday morning off the southern tip of the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake struck about 75 miles (122 km) southeast of Isangel, the administrative capital of the island of Tanna, and 134 miles (217 km) northeast of New Caledonia's Loyalty Islands.

A tsunami alert has not been issued for the South Pacific or the U.S. western coast.

    You think you know a person then that person is not what she represents herself to be. I don't need people like that in my life.

    @Scottish Mama:

    You are correct; there should have been a (C) to my post stating that.
    Still working on my first cuppa coffee.

    Whatever.
    I will, however, direct my comments as I see fit.
    I did nothing wrong.
    You were the one who fired the opening salvo.

    I called someone a wise GIRL instead of a wise WOMAN.
    This is my sin.
    This person also thinks I'm after someone who is not my husband.
    And, as for anyone here who knows me, that notion is patently ridiculous.
