"I felt it" reports:
Solomon Islands / MMI VIII (Severe shaking): holy shiiiitt
(Solomon Islands) (298 km NW from epicenter)(no details): The ground extremely soft because of recent flooding. It felt like a bowl of jello being shaken. Most quakes here are short, around ten seconds, this one seemed to go on and on! Similar feeling to the quake that cause so much damage in 2007. (via EMSC)
