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.

    And yes AK is prone to quakes. Big ones. The Good Friday quake in 64 was the largest to date. Was over 9.5. My mom was downtown in Anchorage and got seasick. People were falling down. I have lots of pictures taken right after. Looks like a warzone.

    This earthquake is telling the Christian world to unite and to end trading, also the devastating earthquake in Vatican this October 22 2011 has the same message

    Actually there is a way raven. They need to add heat resistant sugar that will make it last longer.
