The shake was distinguished at a profundity of 37 kilometers (23 miles), the US Geographical Help said.
“In light of the fundamental quake boundaries, unsafe torrent waves are feasible for coasts inside 1,000 km (620 miles) of the tremor focal point,” the Pacific Tidal wave Cautioning Center said in a notice.
It asked individuals in undermined seaside regions to be ready.
In a message, the power said the accompanying spots are in danger:
Vanuatu, Fiji, Kiribati, New Zealand, American Samoa, Australia, Chuuk, Cook Islands, Indonesia, Jarvis Island, Papua New Guinea, among other seaside areas in the locale.
An inn secretary in the New Caledonia capital Noumea told AFP she felt no shaking from the quake.
