No Australia tsunami threat from Solomon quake

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia was not at risk from a tsunami after a powerful earthquake struck near the Solomon Islands on Wednesday, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said.

The quake with an initial magnitude of 8.0 had triggered a tsunami warning for South Pacific islands closer to the epicenter, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said earlier.
