Luganville (Vanuatu) (71 km S from epicenter)(no details): The streets of santo were really rocking this morning. Parked cars rolled into one another. Many shops closed due to stock falling from shelves. Most people ran outside. Cars stopped as road was rolling and shaking. The quake rocked on for quite a few minutes. It had several large severe pushes and swaying motions. Strongest one I have felt for about 5 years. (via EMSC)
