7.2 magnitude quake hits Solomon Islands region

A 7.2-magnitude earthquake has struck near the Solomon Islands in the western Pacific but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The US Geological Survey said on Monday, that the quake, at 9:36 a.m. local time (2236 GMT on Sunday) was centered 103 kilometers (64 miles) southeast of the island of Gizo.

It followed an earlier 6.5 magnitude quake that struck at 8:48 a.m. local time (2148 GMT Sunday) in the same region.

There was no immediate tsunami warning.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said no tsunami was expected.

The Solomon Islands archipelago, about 2,500 kilometers east of Australia, lies in the Pacific "Ring of Fire" and experiences frequent seismic tremors.

Gizo was badly damaged and at least 50 people were killed on the island when an 8.1 magnitude quake struck on April 2, 2007, sending a tsunami crashing into the coast.
