  1. Civil defense authorities in New Zealand ordered the evacuation of some coastal areas early Friday due to fears that an offshore earthquake could cause a tsunami, although the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it did not see this as a major threat...

    The quake struck at 4:37 a.m. at a depth of 55 km (34 miles) and was 130 km north-east of Te Araroa, off the North Island, according to government earthquake detection service Geonet.
