    Tsunami Destroys Villages in Solomon Islands.....



    A wave measuring three feet reached the island chain after the quake hit around midday local time, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. The magnitude-8 quake, with a depth of 17.8 miles (28.7 kilometers), was centered about 220 miles east of the Santa Cruz Islands, part of the Solomon Islands nation, according to a bulletin issued by the U.S. Geological Survey.

    Close.A magnitude-6.3 quake had struck minutes earlier in the same area, and there were at least three aftershocks measuring above magnitude-6 later in the day. An initial tsunami warning for the Pacific region was soon canceled.

    Official accounts of the extent of the damage in the Solomons remained vague hours after the fact, and a government official said communication with the worst-hit areas remained difficult
