    Tsunami alert in Solomons

    Tsunami warning: Solomons 7.7 quake prompts alert

    Tsunami warning: Solomons 7.7 quake prompts alert - BBC News

    A warning of "widespread, hazardous" tsunami waves has been issued after a huge earthquake off the Solomon Islands.
    Parts of the coasts of the Solomons, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Nauru, New Caledonia, Tuvalu and Kosrae could be affected within hours, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says.
    The earthquake, assessed as being of 7.7 magnitude, occurred about 70km (43 miles) off the Solomons.
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.
