"L'ho sentito" rapporti:
breakas resort vanuatu / MMI IV (Light shaking): woken by rumble then slight shake felt. building structure moved but no noticeable damage. Concern for possible Tsunami?
port vila harbor / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Port Villa / MMI V (Moderate shaking): It woke me up shook three story building for a while
port vila / MMI V (Moderate shaking): nice one really was strong shaking for a extended period, however did not culminate with the usual whip at the end that causes the most damage here in previous earthquakes. am guessing the depth played a factor in nullifiying that and made for a more pleasant then usual experience
noumea / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
Luganville (Vanuatu) (271 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Gentle slow swaying. A noise occurred first, like a rushing sound. (via EMSC)
Noumea (New Caledonia) (554 km S from epicenter)(no details): Très léger, durant très peu de temps (10s max) (via EMSC)
