Strong 6.0-magnitude quake hits off New Zealand – USGS

Jun 06, 2016 12:00 AM

A strong 6.0-magnitude struck Monday almost 90 miles off a remote New Zealand island, the US Geological Survey reported.

The shallow quake occurred at the depth of 6.2 miles southeast of the Kermadec Islands in the South Pacific.

​No information about the damage or casualties was immediately available.

Parts of New Zealand lie on the so-called Ring of Fire, a horseshoe-shaped string of volcanoes around the Pacific Rim, where about 90 percent of the world's quakes occur.
