« on: September 28, 2006, 01:24:50 AM »

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A strong earthquake with a magnitude of up to 7.0 near the remote Samoa islands group in the South Pacific had generated a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said on Thursday.

"Sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated. It may have been destructive along coasts near the earthquake epicenter," the Hawaii-based warning center said on its Web site (www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/).

Strong Quake Near Samoa Triggers Small Tsunami
September 28, 2006
BBC
A strong earthquake near the South Pacific nation of Samoa has triggered a small tsunami, a warning centre says.
Sea level readings following the quake, which had a magnitude of up to 7.0, indicated a tsunami was generated, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said.
But it said a "destructive Pacific-wide tsunami" was not expected.
The quake struck some 300km (185 miles) south-west of Samoa. Waves of 8cm (3.1 inches) high were reported in the American Samoan town of Pago Pago.
One policeman in the capital Apia said buildings swayed and shook for about five minutes, but there was no damage or casualties.
"It was not so strong," he told the Associated Press.
The Hawaii-based warning centre said the tsunami "may have been
destructivealong coasts near the earthquake epicentre".
No damage was immediately reported.
Samoa is a small chain of islands that lies half way between New Zealand and Hawaii.
Countries around the Indian and Pacific Oceans have been testing systems to warn of approaching tsunamis since the 26 December 2004 earthquake unleashed a tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people.
The 9.3 magnitude quake, off the coast of Indonesia, sent waves thousands of
kilometres across the Indian Ocean, hitting countries as far apart as the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Somalia.
