Tsunami warning for Vanuatu

Tsunami waves have been observed in New Caledonia and Vanuatu after a magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says.

The agency said waves as high as 1 metre (3.3 ft) above the high-tide mark were forecast to hit New Caledonia, and smaller waves were expected in Vanuatu.

It said the actual size of the waves would vary depending on the coastline, with barrier reefs reducing wave height, and warned that the initial wave may not be the largest.
