Quake hits Pacific island of Guam

There are no immediate reports of damage and no tsunami alert has been issued.

    US military base

    "We felt it. It was swinging back and forth for a minute or two," Patrick Chan, a meteorologist at the US National Weather Service, said.
     
    "It's not expected to cause a tsunami," the Guam-based meteorologist said.
     
    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre, based in Hawaii, said in a statement that there was "no destructive widespread tsunami threat".
     
    Neither Guam nor the Philippines have issued tsunami warnings.
