Quake Rattles Indian Island Chain
An undersea earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter Scale struck near India's Andaman islands in the Indian Ocean Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The quake was centered about 70 miles southwest of Port Blair, the archipelago's civilian administrator said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.
The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no destructive widespread tsunami threat.
