VANUATU – A shallow 6.5 magnitude earthquake struck the seafloor off the coast of the Vanuatu Islands in the South Pacific. The epicenter of the earthquake was 80 km (49 miles) NW of Isangel, Tanna, Vanuatu and occurred at the shallow depth of 8.7 km (5.4 miles) beneath the earth. Based on the historical seismicity of the region, no tsunami warnings were issued by authorities and there are no immediate reports of damage. The 6.5 magnitude Vanuatu earthquake is the second major earthquake reported today. A 6.2 magnitude earthquake also struck Drake’s Passage. –The Extinction Protocol
