Three Earthquakes shake the Pacific

According to CNN, three powerful earthquakes hit the South Pacific Ocean near New Zealand and Guam. They do not believe that it caused any damage, because they occurred too far off shore. There is a fear of tsunamis when earthquakes happen in the ocean, but it does not look like any of these three quakes caused any. The three quakes registered at 7.1, 7.3 and 6.6. They all three were powerful, and happened in a place where earthquakes are not common.
The Star Tribune reported a more recent report that said one earthquake reached a magnitude of 7.4. They said no warning was reported for the earthquakes, the most powerful quake occurred at 4:24 p.m. New Zealand time. The earthquake happened about 295 miles southwest of Invercargill, New Zealand and 125 miles northwest of the uninhabited Auckland Islands. Officials reported that the quake was felt by some, and not by others in New Zealand.
