Pacific island country rocked by way of large earthquake: BOM


A big earthquake rocked the Pacific island of Tonga on Thursday morning.

The 7.5 magnitude quake struck 73km northwest of Hihifo island, in step with Geoscience Australia.

The Australian Govt company recorded the quake at a intensity of 212km.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) mentioned there used to be no tsunami caution following the earthquake.

“A 7.5 magnitude earthquake close to Tonga isn’t anticipated to provide a tsunami danger for Australia or its offshore territories,” a BOM spokesman mentioned.

The Pacific country used to be rocked by way of a devastating volcanic eruption in late-2021, that brought about common devastation and left citizens cut-off from the outdoor global for weeks.
