7.5 quake hits ocean near Indian islands


PORT BLAIR, India – A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 struck in the ocean near India’s Nicobar Islands on Sunday, sparking some tsunami warnings, the U.S. Geological Survey and local officials said.

There were no initial reports of casualties or damage, although people ran from their homes in fear on Nicobar, witnesses said.

The quake was originally registered with a magnitude of 7.7 but that figure was later revised down slightly to 7.5, the USGS said in a statement.
