Earthquake in New Zealand: Powerful earthquake tremors were felt in New Zealand. The intensity of the earthquake was measured at 7.1 on the Richter scale. A Tsunami warning has been issued in the country after the earthquake.
Tremors of a powerful earthquake were felt in New Zealand on Thursday, 16 March. The intensity of the earthquake was measured at 7.1 on the Richter scale. A tsunami warning has been issued after the earthquake. No specific information has been revealed about the damage caused by the earthquake. The United States Geological Survey (USGS), an organization that monitors seismic activity in the world, has confirmed the earthquake in New Zealand. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that a 7.1 magnitude earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometres in the Kermadec Islands of New Zealand. We are waiting to see what damage has been caused by such a strong earthquake. Earlier, earthquakes in Turkey and Syria had caused huge devastation.
Regarding the earthquake in New Zealand, the USGS issued a statement saying that on the morning of March 16, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Kermadec Islands region, located in the north of New Zealand. The earthquake was at a depth of 10 km. Experts have kept an eye on the situation after the earthquake.
On the other hand, the expert said that the earthquake occurred in the sea, and in such a situation there is a possibility of a tsunami. Experts say that a tsunami can occur within a radius of 300 km from the epicentre of the earthquake. A warning has been issued regarding the tsunami. All concerned teams have been put on alert.
It goes on to say that the area of New Zealand comes in the earthquake-sensitive area. It is situated on the boundary of two major tectonic plates of the world (the Pacific Plate and the Australian Plate). Thousands of earthquakes strike New Zealand every year. The biggest reason behind this is that it is located on the edges of the area of seismic activity, which is called the Ring of Fire. The extent of damage caused by the earthquake this morning is yet to be known.
