8.2 Magnitude Ring Of Fire Earthquake: Tremors Felt In Moscow

Two earthquakes have hit the Ring of Fire area, registering magnitudes of 8.2 and 5.7 and prompting a tsunami warning.

Moscow felt tremors from the more powerful quake, causing some people to evacuate buildings despite the epicentre being more than 4,000 miles to the east.

The US Geological Survey said the epicentre of Thursday's quake was in the Kuril-Kamchatka arc, one of the most seismically active regions in the world.
