fijiA strong earthquake measuring about 6.1 magnitude hit off the coastline of Fiji today as declared by the US Geological Survey. However, despite the incident, there have been no immediate reports of any kind of damage or casualties.

 

The quake had been recorded at 6.11 p.m.

 

The epicenter of the earthquake was at a distance of 152 kilometres southwest of Nadi and 238 kilometres from the capital Suva at a depth of nearly 10 kilometres.

 

A week ago, an earthquake that measured about 7.2 magnitude was recorded in the same region.

The area where the earthquake struck on the Pacific Ring of Fire is actually a highly active tectonic zone. This part of the world often experiences volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
