A 6.4 magnitude earthquake Friday shook southern Vanuatu, situated in the South Pacific, although no casualties have been reported yet.

The United States Geological Survey, which records seismic activities around the world, said the hypocenter was located at a depth of 169 kilometers (105 miles).

The epicenter of the quake was located near Erromango island, the fourth largest island of the archipelago.

Vanuatu is situated near the Pacific Ring of Fire and the underwater volcanoes of Lau islands where seismic activities are recorded frequently.
