Magnitude 6.7 quake strikes off Pacific island of Vanuatu: US Geological Survey

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A quake with a magnitude of 6.7 struck off the Pacific island of Vanuatu on Thursday, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The USGS said the quake's epicentre was 240km south-southeast of the town of Isangel and was relatively deep at 117.5km beneath the surface.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said no tsunami was likely to be generated by the quake because of its depth.
