A 5.3-magnitude earthquake struck North Island near Rotorua in New Zealand, said the US Geological Survey Thursday.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawai did not issue any tsunami warning.

The quake had a depth of 95 miles and was felt in and around 30 miles southwest of the town of Rotorua at 15:02 GMT, the USGS said.

The South Island was just recovering from the devastation caused in September 2010 when a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch region.

A day before in Indonesia a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck the Sumatra province at a depth of 16 miles around west of Sibolga at 22:42 p.m. (15:42 GMT), the USGS said.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, where the continental plates keep moving with high seismic activity.
