US, NEW YORK (ORDO NEWS) — Powerful 7.38 magnitude earthquake hits near New Zealand.
New Zealand was shaken by a powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.3 . The epicenter lay at a depth of 10 km and was located in the ocean off the coast of the country’s northern island. The earthquake was felt in many parts of New Zealand. The first waves have probably already reached New Zealand in the areas around the East Cape. Tsunami activity will continue for several hours. The tsunami alarm has not yet been canceled.
This earthquake was another consequence of the ongoing collision of the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates in the area of the seismic anomaly near the Loyotte Islands, about which we constantly write and warn that this anomalous zone with incredible seismic activity is already affecting all neighboring tectonic plates.
