Solomon Islands

Image

Our little station M49A caught this from the down under…..The Solomon Islands are 12,545Km(7,795 miles) away. They are north east of Australia. Since Wednesday there have been multiple quakes with this 8.0 being the largest. Many homes and around 9 lives were lost. The quakes have caused “small” tsunamis of a little over a meter (~4 ft). Many of the homes are on the shores of multiple islands. (Northwest Ohio is not so bad after all.)

It still amazes me how small our planet really is.
