Wellington: A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck off Fiji on Saturday, United Sates seismologists said, but it was considerably deep and there were no reports of damage or injury.
The offshore quake hit at 3 pm (0200 GMT) and was centred around 287 kilometres east of Suva, at a depth of 538 kilometres, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said.
The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately issue any warnings.
The quake occurred in the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, a region of frequent seismic activity due to collisions between continental plates.
