Significant aftershocks continue to pound Santa Cruz Islands region as govt. declares a State of Disaster

Solomon Islands government has declared a State of Disaster for Santa Cruz Islands after a meter-high tsunami triggered by a magnitude 8.0 quake engulfed the region on Wednesday.

  • At least nine people are dead and many are missing after the tsunami damaged or destroyed more than 20 villages.
  • Officials say scope of the disaster is much worse than initially thought and they  still don’t know the fate of the more outlying villages in the reef islands.
  • The tsunami has wept away entire villages, spreading debris everywhere.
  • “The force behind the meter-high [tsunami] wave swept everything in its path, especially in low-lying areas,” said an official.
  •  “Many people have no clothes at all, everything was washed away.”
  • Authorities say about 7,000 people have been displaced as a result of the tsunami,  but the number could reach much higher.
