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.

    @banasy; Just curious about how your husband had a fishing trip cancel on him. I was unaware that fishing trips could cancel. I am aware however that a fishing party could cancel a fishing trip on your husband.

    @John:
    The fish called my husband and said the trip was canceled.
    My husband knows the Incredible Mr. Limpet.
    Hope this clears up your confusion.
