A major 7.4-magnitude earthquake struck the South Pacific Ocean, 76 km northwest of Hihifo, Niuas, Tonga at a depth of 213km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

Risk of tsunami has been excluded.
