2 Indian Ocean quake cause no damage

India's meteorological office has reported a second 5.1-magnitude earthquake in the Indian Ocean west of the Nicobar Islands, just hours after a 7.5-magnitude temblor.
Police in the main regional city of Port Blair say there are no reports of damage from either quake.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii had initially issued a tsunami watch for the region after the first earthquake at about 1:26 a.m. Sunday (1926 GMT Saturday). It later reduced the watch area to India only, then canceled the warning.
Police official Nazir Ali says no tsunami warning was issued after the second quake at about 1:10 p.m. Sunday.
