Approximately 7000 people across 3 provinces are reported to have been affected by earthquakes in the Solomon Islands.
The latest update from disaster authorities in the country also indicate that around 200 buildings including 11 schools and a medical clinic have been destroyed or damaged in the Makira & Ulawa, Malaita and Guadalcanal provinces.
It is understood some of these houses were also hit by waves generated by the quakes.
The original 7.8 magnitude quake which struck near Makira in the country's south on Friday was followed by a powerful 6.9 magnitude aftershock on Saturday morning.
The country director for World Vision Solomon Islands Janes Ginting told Koroi Hawkins Saturday's powerful aftershock has caused a lot of anxiety in already shaken communities.
