The US Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.5 has been recorded in the south Pacific.

The agency's National Earthquake Information Center said the tremor was centered 322 kilometers west-northwest of Neiafu, Tonga, and 438 kilometers east of Lambasa, Fiji.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a warning, explaining that the quake was centered too far underground.
