Very dangerous earthquake close to Sumatra island Simeulue
The earthquake was caused by the stress generated by the subduction zone who has triggered a number of mega-earthquakes in the past. People ran out on the streets out of fear. People are used to strong earthquakes on the island who has suffered a lot of devastating tsunamis during recent years.

  • 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..

    seismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
    If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
    For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.
