The U.S. Geological Survey says a strong earthquake struck in the Fiji Islands region, but a tsunami is not expected.

The 6.5-magnitude quake struck at 1:28 p.m. with its epicenter about 26 miles east northeast of Ndoi Island, Fiji.

The quake struck at a depth of 349 miles.

Deeper quakes are less noticeable while a shallow quake–in the 0 to 40 mile depth range–can feel much stronger than their actual reported magnitude. Quakes just below the earth’s surface, in the 0 to 10 miles range, can cause even more damage at lower magnitudes.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.
