Magnitude 7.0 natural disaster hits off New Caledonia

There is no tsunami threat to Hawaii after a magnitude 7.0 quake struck near New Caledonia in the Pacific Basin.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) promptly issued a tsunami threat warning for coasts within 186 miles of the earthquake's epicenter.

It was centred about 68 kilometres northeast of Tadine in what are known as the Loyalty Islands. It was the second major tremor in the same area in just over 12 hours and the third in the past month. However, no immediate casualties and damage have recorded.

The PTWC warned of "possible" hazardous waves within 300 kilometres of the epicentre.

New Zealand officials say there is no tsunami threat.
