A magnitude 6.5 earthquake has struck off the coast of Bouvet Island in the south Atlantic. The earthquake struck at a depth of about 15 kilometers.
No tsunami threat is expected at this time, and there are no threats to life as the island is uninhabited. The island is possessed by Norway and is home to a research center. (source) 2:43 p.m. ET December 13, 2017
