The islands of New Zealand, America Samoa, Samoa, Cook Islands, Soloman Islands, Toga, Vaniati and Figi, along with Wallis and Futuna were initially notified with the tsunami warning.

A tsunami warning issued for coastal areas this morning was based on the best information at hand at the time, the Ministry of Civil Defence says.

Apart from a handful of conservation workers on Raoul Island - the largest of all - the Kermadecs are uninhabited. There is no tsunami threat to Hawaii.
