Vanuatu Earthquake Generates Tsunami: Twitter latest

Yesterday there was a Tsunami alert put in place following the 7.5 magnitude Vanuatu Earthquake. In the video below you can see a news report detailing the quake and the fears that a mini-tsunami could be generated, and while looking at twitter to get the most updated news, a Tsunami did form.

Thankfully only a 9-inch (22 centimeter) wave hit the capital Port Vila, and there had been no reports of injuries or damage. However, the Earthquake did caused some damage – some power lines came down while buildings shook.

Most of the updates on Twitter are from websites and news stations reporting from the scene, we have yet to see locals tweet their experiences and if their buildings had been damaged.

If you live in the Vanuatu region and were affected by this latest earthquake, then please let us know how you are, and how it has affected you.
