Quake hits close to New Zealand

  • The South Pacific Ocean experienced three earthquakes Tuesday morning (today), but no reports of damage were received then. 

    Two quakes hit only minutes apart and the larger one was originally thought to be at a magnitude of 7.2, but turned out to be 6.9 instead. 

    The three quakes happened nearly 50 miles from Raoul Island.
