"I felt it" reports:
Nuku'alofa (Tonga) (80 km SW from epicenter)(no details): We thought it was going to throw us out of bed! Stayed awake then for ages just in case the tsunami sirens went off. Not a restful night. (via EMSC)
Nuku'alofa (Tonga) (80 km SW from epicenter)(no details): Not cool!!! (via EMSC)
Nuku'alofa (Tonga) (76 km SW from epicenter)(no details): Felt it, but wasnt overly worried - just a bit shocked as it has been years since I felt one. I used to live in Tokyo with a large number of course, and now living here in Tonga, it has been at least 14 years since I felt any earthquake. (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
