A magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck an arc of islands off New Zealand on Sunday, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it may cause only minor sea level changes in some coastal areas.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake hit a spot about 873 kilometres northeast of Ngunguru, New Zealand, a town of about 1,400 people. It occurred at a depth of 10 kilometres.
The area the quake struck is called the Kermadec Islands, about 800 kilometres northeast of New Zealand’s North Island.
New Zealand’s Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management cleared New Zealand of a tsunami threat moments after issuing a beach warning.

he Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management has cleared New Zealand of a tsunami threat minutes after issuing a beach warning following the magnitude 7.0 earthquake near the Kermadec Islands.
The earthquake occurred in the Kermadec Islands region at 10.55am.
A Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management spokesman said there may be some strong currents but there was nothing to indicate a threat to life and safety in New Zealand.
Tidal gauges at Raoul Island, which lay between the epicentre and New Zealand, had shown good news, he said.
Raoul Island is home to a Department of Conservation (DOC) station.
A DOC spokeswoman confirmed all seven staff based on Raoul Island were safe and accounted for.
"There are no other contractors or visitors on the island," she said.
At this stage, they were unsure of any damage on the island and staff would be assessing this, she said.
The Kermadec Islands Nature Reserve and Marine Reserve is the most remote area managed by DOC and can only be visited with a special permit.The Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management, which made the assessment alongside GNS Science, said earlier that if a tsunami had been generated in this location it was not likely to arrive in New Zealand for at least two hours.
