A tsunami warning has been issued for the south east coast of Australia following a magnitude 7.8 earthquake off New Zealand's South Island.

The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre has declared a potential threat to New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands.

The epicentre of the undersea quake was located about 160km west of the city of Invercargill, on South Island, at a depth of 33 kilometres, USGS reported.

The quake struck at 8.22pm (1922 AEST).

The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a warning, saying, 'An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines in the region near the epicentre within minutes to hours.'

The centre added it was not immediately known if a tsunami had been generated.



Geez Australia is a nice place, February = mega-fire, July = tsunami. Won't get us though.

1 1/2 - 2 hours, far enough that it won't get anywhere near us. ;-)

Glug glug etc. X-I

I'll be interested to see what actually shows up.
Some weather guy was just on Sky News saying "It won't wipe out coastal towns, don't worry."

I'm surprised it is only sending water to Australia and (apparently) nothing at all to New Zealand, which it was only 160 kms from. Where as Aust. is 2000+ km west.
