0

SYDNEY: A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of the Solomon Islands on Saturday, the US Geological Survey said, but the threat of a Pacific tsunami in the tremor-prone region was thought to have mostly passed. The shallow tremor was centered about 78 kilometers (48 miles) west-northwest of Lata in the Solomon Islands and about 583 kilometers from the capital Honiara, it said, after revising it down from an initial estimate of 7.5.
