An natural disaster with a magnitude of 7.7 struck Monday off the eastern coast of Russian Federation, according to the US Geological Survey, causing officials to initially warn of a tsunami threat in parts of the Pacific. "The epicenter was 290 kilometers off Bering Island in Kamchatka's Aleutian region, 750 kilometers from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky", the source said.

The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre issued an alert on Tuesday morning confirming there is no threat to Australia. A 7.9 magnitude quake in Papua New Guinea on January 22 was the strongest so far this year. Tsunami waves were possible for coasts within 186 miles of the quake epicenter, officials said.

The natural disaster occurred at 7:34 p.m. EDT approximately 124 miles east-southeast of Nikol'skoye, Russia, off the coast of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, at a depth of 7.3 miles.
