Earthquake @ Solomon Islands

I heard the news from the radio while driving to the office this morning. The earthquake has triggered a tsunami and swept over the city of Gizo in Solomon Islands.

Here is the story highlight from CNN.COM
• 20 dead, thousands homeless, Solomon Islands government says
• State of emergency declared in Solomon Islands
• Earthquake estimated to be around 220 miles northwest of Honiara
• USGS: 8.0 magnitude quake was followed by 6.7 magnitude tremor
