No damage nor tsunami warning from earthquake

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 31/05/2019

A 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck Tonga in the early hours of Friday morning but the Tonga Meterological Service confirmed there was no tsunami generated by this earthquake.

Tonga Met reported the earthquake struck at 4:38am at approximately 134 kilometers west-southwest of Nuku’alofa and there was little chance for it to cause damage and so far there has been no report of any damages from this.

Tonga of course is vulnerable to frequent earthquakes due to our geographic location on the Pacific Ring of Fire.
