Earthquake hits New Zealand with 6.0 magnitude

World News : A magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit off New Zealand on Monday, but seismologists said it was unlikely to result in damage in the remote area.

The US Geological Survey said the tremor in the Kermadec Islands region north of New Zealand, which struck at about 0416 GMT, was estimated to be at a depth of 325 kilometers (200 miles) and about 112 kilometers from the nearest populated area at L’Esperance Rock.

Geoscience Australia said the quake, which was about 866 kilometers from the New Zealand city of Auckland, was common in the region and unlikely to cause damage.

“It’s quite normal to have this size quake there,” duty seismologist Hugh Glanville said. Agencies
