No tsunami warnings and dangers.

The area was struck on June 15-16, 2019 by 3 strong earthquakes with magnitudes of 6.1, 7.2 and 6.3, respectively.

This part of the Ring of Fire is currently very active. Fear is raising in New Zealand after a leading expert has warned a deadly underground volcanic eruption could strike urban Auckland at any moment causing torrents of lava to flow through the streets.

Time will tell… But be prepared!
