  • Honiara, Solomon Islands - The recent earthquake has bring a lot of bad memories of the earthquake and Tsunami that hit Gizo not long ago. Aftershock have been felt some 80 minutes after the earthquake and families are running away with their little ones. People fear tsunami might strike, therefore are afraid to sleep.
  • Honiara - 2nd floor shaking hard, a few things fell down, but internet restored - ADSL and as it is SW thus on the other side of Guadalcanal (weathercoast) no tsunami fears. I am on the water - 5 meters away. I was in the SF 1989 EQ at Candlestick - that much worse and longer, took about 15-20 sec here (seemed). The wood and concrete swayed but made it and the AC continues to work along with electricity so we are lucky at the IBSH. USGS map showed the spot 15 minutes later. Michael
  • Honiara - Around 10:15PM - 6.5 M The epicenter was directly under the east side of Honiara; I’m on the western side, 3rd floor right on the water. I woke to a floor lamp crashing and breaking, the closet doors banging - It sounded like someone was trying to kick the door in. The building I’m in raddled loudly throughout but there seams to be no visual damage. The power was out on some areas of the island but quickly restored in our hotel. After shock around 1hr and another about 8hrs.
  • Honiara, Solomon Islands - Couldn't walk straight. second floor at home shook violently for a few seconds, with a few objects falling to the floor. Felt aftershocks some minutes later.
  • Honiara - I lived in a 3 storey apartment in honiara.I hit strongly.my houehold esp women and children are traumatised recalling the expieranced of the historic tsunami in westyern solomon not long ago.We leave about 50 meters off the coast of west honiara.all resients fled inland and spend the night. It hits again 30 mins ago.
  • Honiara - Thought my house was going down.... Couldn't balance myself properly, a lot of vomiting was done after the quake.
  • Honiara - It shook very strong for less than 5 seconds after a moderate shaking. Cause panic and even power cut to certain parts of Honiara.No major damage.
  • Honiara - I was already sound asleep, my 2yr old son and his dad had just said their prayers after watching a movie, when our concrete house sway , rocked and as if floated. Since it was my son's first awareness of an earthquake he was terrified and was speechless for almost half an hour.If it had gone on at this rate for another minute or two, we would surely have lots and lost of damage. But I guess only minor damage is done around the Capital but i feel for my people along the southern coast of Guadalc
  • Honiara - 1st time experienced in my entire life. im in honiara for 4 months. deep is is right behind us..scary..

    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
