HONIARA HIT BY EARTHQUAKES TOO

HONIARA, Solomon Islands (January 7, 2002 - Solomon Star/PINA Nius Online) - Not just Port Vila in neighboring Vanuatu has been hit by earthquakes. Honiara, too, was rocked by earthquakes -- at least four over the past two weeks.

The strongest caused workers at one six-story building to flee for the day.

And at the National Bank of Solomon Islands Point Cruz branch, workers and bankers rushed to escape the ground floor.

Some people were slightly injured as they forced their way out the main entrance.
