Any damage or injuries? Are those islands populated?

HI berkeman

not that I have heard of ... fortunately that 218 km depth would have cushioned the impact somewhat
yes populated, Vanuatu is a very popular holiday spot, specially for divers. My mate and his wife go up there
at least once a year for a couple of weeks diving on old WW2 wrecks etc

here's an aerial pic of 1/2 of Port Vila

There are a number of islands in the group --- My mate dives offshore of the town of Luganville, on the Island of Santo 200 - 300 km's to the north

There's 2 or 3 active volcanoes that attract lots of visitors
