According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, they could not monitor any static change in the sea level or any tsunami readings, and even if there was a tsunami rising, the threat was outside the scope of the region. The epicenter of the quake was detected at 300 miles from the island of Port Villa, at a depth of 22 miles. It struck the region at 01:45:26 local time.

Local authorities of Vanatu are checking in for any signs of a tsunami in the area, but for the moment there seems to be no threat. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has also confirmed that Hawaii too doesn’t pose any danger from a tsunami.
