Solomon Island quake

A second strong temblor struck the Solomon Islands in a day raising fear of a tsunami.

The magnitude 7.7 quake struck at 11.36pm local time, with an epicentre 328 kilometres southeast of the capital Honiara and a depth of 20km, according to the US Geological Survey.

This morning, a magnitude 7.6 quake in the same area triggered large waves at the South Pacific country, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from either quake.

A tsunami warning has been issued for the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said following Sunday night’s quake.

The Solomon Islands is still reeling from flash floods that struck on April 3, killing 23 people and leaving nine thousand homeless.
