"I felt it" reports:
Nasama resort on pango road (116.4 km NNW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): The shaking noise wake me up at 1am local time and it was like a subway passing right under our hotel room. Maybe stronger because the bed was shaking big time, and I had the feeling to be in a boat cruising on small waves. No damage to deplore.......Vanuatu is still a paradise!!! Eric

Tuo Maré / MMI IV (Light shaking): Réveillé par le lit qui s'est mis à tremblé fort grondement de la terre

Lenakel (Vanuatu) (98 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Strong enough to wake up me. Felt as though it lasted a while - 10 seconds? Maybe more, hard to tell! Any tsunami warnings? Thanks (via EMSC)
