Update: Santa Cruz Islands (Solomon Islands) earthquake 2013: Tsunami kills 6

The Earthquake and Tsunami in Santa Cruz Islands (Solomon Islands) has killed 6 people and collapsed more than 100 houses in Lata. Three people are still reported to be missing.

Due to the remoteness of the natural disaster area, it is difficult for Solomon Islands government and relief agencies to get detailed reports of the damage.

The Solomon Islands sit above the collision between the Australia and Pacific plates.

This earthquake is the second-largest earthquake in the Solomon Islands region in almost 40 years.
