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 hope there is no loss of life.

    @Troll banasy & raven:

    Nice try again, troll.
    Keep on keeping on.
    Couldn't you troll two other people, though?
    Neither raven or I are as silly as you try to portray us, and we have never done anything to you.
    And yes, most people can tell the difference.
