There is no tsunami threat to the Philippines after the preliminary 8.0-magnitude quake that occurred in New Zealand, according to an advisory posted by PHIVOLCS.




The agency said the strong quake occurred early Friday at 3:28 a.m. in Kermadec Islands in New Zealand with a depth of 10 kilometers.\


PHIVOLCS, however, said that hazardous tsunami waves are possible for coasts located near the earthquake epicenter.



New Zealand ordered coastal evacuations as the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center warned waves of up to three meters (10 feet) were possible in the Pacific region nations of Vanuatu and the French territory of New Caledonia. -- BAP/KBK
