A powerful 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka peninsula, some 80 kilometers north east of Ust-Kamchatsk. The Sakhalin tsunami monitoring center issued a warning of possible local waves of up to 1.5 meters.
The earthquake was registered at 7:09 Moscow time. No casualties or damage have been reported so far. The regional emergencies authorities were not immediately available for a comment.
“We declared a tsunami threat based on seismic data,” a spokesman from the Tsunami center announced. However, the spokesman emphasized that oceanographers are yet to confirm the tsunami threat.
