Powerful 7.8 earthquake shakes New Zealand's remote Kermadec Islands in Pacific
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A powerful magnitude-7.8 earthquake rattled New Zealand's remote Kermadec Islands in the Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The Kermadec Islands are a remote outpost that are generally uninhabited aside from a weather station and a hostel for visiting New Zealand scientists.

The 7:03 a.m. Thursday (1903 GMT Wednesday) quake was 29.8 miles (48 kilometers) deep, the USGS said. No tsunami alert was issued.



The Kermadecs are about 570 miles (920 kilometers) south of Tonga, the nearest major island.
