Earthquake - did you feel it?

Hey, fellow Fiji travelers, I read on the news there was an earthquake on Friday evening in Fiji. How bad was it and did anyone get hurt (I hope not)?

It's a pretty active area. Check out …usgs.gov/eqcenter/…S_Pacific_eqs.php

There was also a pretty strong one on March 24/25, but no damage was reported.

I'm here, in Fiji - didn't hear a thing. This may be an "active" area, but I've never felt more than a few very very light tremors that most people wouldn't take notice. I moved her from Southern california, and this is nothing. No worries, you'll never feel a thing. No damange, nobody hurt, like I said, we didn't feel a thing.

Hi, Suz - Check out http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=fiji+earthquake&btnG=Search+News

Glad there were no apparent effects from any of the quakes. I'd imagine most of them are offshore with few effects anywhere on land.
