Lombok island rocked by 6.3-magnitude natural disaster

The earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean between Tonga and Fiji the US Geological Survey said

The quake struck southeast of Fiji and close to Tonga.

A strong 8.2-magnitude quake struck off Fiji Sunday, the US Geological Survey said, but it was too deep to generate a tsunami and there were no reports of damage.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said no tsunami was expected, perhaps considering the quake's depth.

It was initially reported as a magnitude 8.0 and then upgraded to 8.2, a magnitude that could cause tremendous damage had it not been so deep.

Emery, however, has reassured Özil that he is central to Arsenal's attack. "We have one plan, we have one process", he said. They have different qualities but for us in the way we want to play, they can [both] play.

The quake's depth at 347.7 miles (560 km) would have dampened the shaking at the surface.

A strong natural disaster has jolted the Indonesian island of Lombok as it tries to recover from a quake earlier this month that killed 460 people.

Indonesia, an archipelago of thousands of islands, sits on the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and numerous world's volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.
