Earthquake M7.4 Strikes El Salvador, may cause 'hazardous tsunami waves'...

A 7.4 earthquake has struck about 106km (66 miles) off the coast of El Salvador, south-east of the city of Usulutan. There were no details of any casualties or damage, although it was a shallow one at a depth of just 9km (5.6 miles).

A warning of "hazardous tsunami waves" was given by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center on Monday, after first saying that a widespread tsunami wasn't a possibility.

The area affected by the tsunami could also include coasts of Honduras and Nicaragua, both of which are within 300km (180 miles) of the epicenter, the warning center said.
