Lucky escape for Solomon Islands after 7.8 earthquake, all tsunami threats cancelled
Thu, Dec 8

The Solomon Islands has had a lucky escape after a 7.8 earthquake this morning which has resulted in minor tsunami activity in the province of Makira.

Nurse Hudson Taro, from the village of Ngarighoho in south-west Makira, says residents evacuated to the hills and watched as the sea went dry and then waves washed inland.

Many people raced back down to collect fish which were left floundering when the waves went back out.

Only minor damage has been reported and some canoes were washed out to sea after the quake struck 8km south-west of Kirakira in the Solomon Islands at 6.38am (NZT).

The Disaster Management Office says it has received reports of houses collapsing in other parts of the Solomon Islands.

Residents in the capital Honiara have complained about the lack of warning, saying the Telecom auto message text system did not work.

Local journalist Dorothy Wickham said there was "chaos and panic" at Honiara's main hospital on the waterfront, following the earthquake.

The hospital is currently swamped with dengue fever patients and there was widespread panic after the earthquake caused the power to go off.

All tsunami threats have now passed.

Honiara resident Tali Hong wrote on Twitter that there is no sense of panic in her Solomon Islands hometown.

"Honiara is currently experiencing no electricity... there is no tsunami warning siren in place," Ms Hong wrote on Twitter.

"Thank you for your prayers and concern. Looks like everything is going to be okay for now."
