A 7.4-magnitude earthquake has struck off the South Georgia Island region, in the southern Atlantic Ocean, the US Geological Survey said Friday.
The quake struck at 0732 GMT at a depth of 10 kilometres and about 316 kilometres east-south-east of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, which are British overseas territories.
