2 April 2007 Solomon Islands earthquake
A large 8.2 magnitude earthquake shook the Solomon Islands on 2 April 2007 and caused a tsunami that damaged or destroyed houses up to 200 m inland on Simbo Island. Residents of Simbo later reported that the island smelled of sulfur, suggesting that the quake had perturbated the shallow hydrothermal system, releasing larger amounts of sulfur gas from the fumaroles. Many temporarily left the island in fear of a possible eruption.
2006 seismic swarm
Towards the end of September 2006, a seismic swarm occurred at Simbo Island, which was felt by residents during several days. On 21 September, 7 earthquakes were reported, but their magnitude and depth is unknown because there is no monitoring on the island. It is likely though that the quakes were volcanic in origin.
