According to sources it was stated that a 7.5 magnitude quake has struck off the coast of the Pacific island of New Caledonia, prompting warnings that tsunami waves of up to three metres can reach New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

Meanwhile the US Geological Survey reports states that the epi centre was recorded as 168km east south east of Tadine, a town on France's New Caledonia. Furthermore New Zealand's Ministry of Civil Defense and Emergency Management though tweeted that there was no tsunami threat to the nation's coasts even though the tsunami alert issued for coasts within 1,000km.
