Quake measuring 6.1 magnitude strikes off Solomon Islands

SYDNEY (Reuters) - An earthquake measuring 6.1 magnitude struck off the Solomon Islands on Monday, around 90 km (55 miles) south of the city of Kira-Kira, the United States Geological Survey reported.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The quake comes on the heels of a powerful magnitude 7.5 tremor that struck off the Pacific island nation over the weekend, sparking a tsunami warning.
