Tsunami alert as powerful quake hits off Russia’s Kamchatka

A powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake off Russia’s Kamchatka region may trigger tsunami waves within a 300km radius, the US Pacific tsunami warning center said.

According to the US Geological Survey, the quake hit at a 10km depth in the Pacific some 200km from Nikolskoe, a village located on the Bering Island off the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula.

Three other less powerful quakes were registered in the same region by the USGS in the past 24 hours.
