7.0-magnitude quake strikes near Northern Mariana Islands


It hass been reported that a deep 7.0-magnitude quake struck near Northern Mariana Islands in the western Pacific on Tuesday, the US Geological Survey said, but no tsunami warning was issued.

The quake hit 42 kilometres (26 miles) west of Agrihan and 395 kilometres north of the main island Saipan, but it was at a depth of 603 kilometres and seismologists said it was too deep to cause any impact.





No damage is likely as there hardly is any population around the area.
