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.

      I happen to be a toffee nut fan. After my husband being persistant for 27 years that I drink coffee, I started a year ago in July. Tea was my cup of tea until then, he is such a pusher.

    What do you think I lied about, Jazzzzz?
    How can I know what to explain or apologize for if I don't even know what it is I did?
    I think, perhaps, that you have crossed that line many times before by your repeated texts to me calling me ungodly names.
    I have forgiven you for that, because that's what a friend does.
    I have seen your diatribes against me with other posters, telling people you don't even know that I'm something YOU KNOW I'm not.
    I'm sorry that your personal life is amiss, and if blaming me for that makes you feel better, have at it.
