WELLINGTON: A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck near Micronesia on Thursday, geologists said, but no tsunami warning was issued.

The quake hit at 6:16 pm (0816 GMT) at a depth of 10 kilometres (six miles), 96 kilometres south-southeast of Ifalik in Micronesia, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said.

It followed another 6.1-magnitude quake which hit in almost exactly the same location earlier on Thursday.

The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami.
