New Zealand earthquake: Magnitude 7.1 quake strikes off the coast of the North Island
A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck off the coast of New Zealand's North Island on Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake hit at a depth of about 10 kilometers (6 miles) about 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of the city of Gisborne, the USGS said. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami threat from the quake. The quake was initially reported as magnitude 7.2 but was later downgraded to 7.1. New Zealand is on the boundary of the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates, which form part of the so-called "Ring of Fire" that circles the Pacific Basin and is prone to frequent earthquakes. In February 2011, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Christchurch, killing 185 people and causing widespread damage. In November 2016, a 7.8 magnitude quake struck the South Island, killing two people and generating a tsunami that killed another two. The quake was the largest in the country since a 7.8 magnitude quake in the city of Inangahua in 1853. The country is also prone to volcanic eruptions, with the last one happening in the city of Mount Tongariro in August 2014. The country is home to two active volcanoes, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Tongariro. The country's largest recorded earthquake was a 7.8 magnitude quake in the city of Inangahua in 1853.
