A tsunami several metres high crashed into the Solomons\' westernmost province today, generated by a magnitude 8.1 earthquake about 6.40am (AEST)

I slept through it only to be told \"He dad.. You slept through a tsunami alert.\"

Seeing how my bed is only about 3 foot above the high tide mark here. My boys had the pick-up ready to drag their dad up to the top of the local mountain…

No doubt I would have woken up with nail polish on and a pink punk hair style.

Little buggers.
