A tsunami warning was issued shortly after by the US Tsunami Warning System for nearby, uninhabited islands in a 300-km radius. “Tsunami waves reaching 0.3m to 1m above the tide level are possible for some coasts of Kermadec Islands,” the alert said. The National Emergency Management Agency said there is no tsunami threat for New Zealand following the earthquake.

New Zealand is prone to earthquakes as it is located on the boundary of two of the world's major tectonic plates – the Pacific Plate and the Australian Plate. It is also on the edge of a zone of intense seismic activity known as the Ring of Fire. Every year, thousands of earthquakes shake New Zealand.
