A 5.4-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of India's remote Nicobar Islands on Friday, the US Geological Survey said, while local authorities reported two other quakes.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The first quake struck at 07:11 pm (13:41 GMT) in the coastal waters, according an official of the Indian Meteorological Department.
"No immediate action is needed. We are just keeping a watch," Deen Mohammad, an officer at the disaster management authority in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman and Nicobar group of islands, told AFP.
