An earthquake of magnitude 8 Mw and depth 28.7 km occurred on 06/02/2013 01:12 UTC, affecting about 17000 people on the Nendo Island in Temotu, Solomon Islands. The earthquake caused a tsunami with a maximum wave height of 2.0m (calculated) on the South West side of Nendo Island, near Nemya Bay. This tsunami wave arrived after 1-2 minutes. The main shock was followed by a series of aftershocks, of which the highest magnitude was 7.1 Mw, itself contributing to the sea level deformation with an additional small tsunami.
GDACS detected the earthquake after 9 minutes (based on seismic data from the US National Earthquake Information Centre) and sent 3625 SMS and 7365 email Orange alerts based on the tsunami wave height within 4 minutes. The GDACS Virtual OSOCC was activated at 7:37UTC. Tsunami calculations for this event were triggered as early as 7 min by seismologic data providers.
As of 13:00 UTC, international media and humanitarian organisations report 5 people dead, several injured, 50-100 houses destroyed, damage to several villages around Lata as well as critical infrastructure being affected (flooded airport, power outages).
