A powerful 6.5 earthquake struck just off the coast of The Solomon Islands early Friday morning. It was followed with a 5.3 magnitude aftershock, according to the USGS.
According to RT.com :
The quake struck at a depth of about 20 kilometers, some 165km west of the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara.
There was no immediate tsunami warning issued for the area, with the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center saying the US territories were in no danger.
There have been no reports of damage or casualties on the Solomon Islands so far.
The latest natural disaster comes a week after Cyclone Raquel swept through the country damaging houses and crops across Choiseul, Isabel, Malaita, and the Western Provinces.
Thousands of people in remote areas of the Solomon Islands now require emergency assistance after some 10,000 people were affected by the cyclone and the subsequent heavy rains.
