  * ORIGIN TIME    1739 UTC DEC 8 2016
  * COORDINATES    10.7 SOUTH  161.4 EAST
  * DEPTH          40 KM / 25 MILES
  * LOCATION       SOLOMON ISLANDS


EVALUATION
----------

  * AN EARTHQUAKE WITH A PRELIMINARY MAGNITUDE OF 7.8 OCCURRED IN
    THE SOLOMON ISLANDS AT 1739 UTC ON THURSDAY DECEMBER 8 2016.

  * ADDITIONAL TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE.

  * NOTE THAT A MAXIMUM WAVE AMPLITUDE OF 0.43 M WAS OBSERVED AT
    TIDE STATION HIENGHENE IN NEW CALEDONIA AND THE AMPLITUDE
    IS CURRENTLY DIMINISHING AT THAT LOCATION.

RECOMMENDED ACTIONS
-------------------

  * FOR COASTAL AREAS IMPACTED BY TSUNAMI WAVES... CAREFULLY
    MONITOR FOR ANY CONTINUING SEA LEVEL CHANGES. WHEN HAZARDOUS
    WAVES HAVE NOT BEEN OBSERVED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN IT
    CAN BE ASSUMED THE HAZARD HAS PASSED. HOWEVER... CONTINUE TO
    EXERCISE CAUTION AROUND THE SEA AS SMALLER TSUNAMI
    FLUCTUATIONS MAY CONTINUE FOR MANY MORE HOURS.

  * FOR OTHER COASTAL AREAS... IF HAZARDOUS WAVES HAVE NOT BEEN
    OBSERVED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS AFTER THE ESTIMATED ARRIVAL
    TIME THEN IT CAN BE ASSUMED THE HAZARD HAS PASSED.
    HOWEVER... SMALL SEA LEVEL FLUCTUATIONS MAY OCCUR AND NORMAL
    CAUTION AROUND THE SEA SHOULD BE EXERCISED.

TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS
--------------------

  * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL
    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

  * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS
    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST
    FOR MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

  * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO
    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION
    OF THE SHORELINE.

  * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT
    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

  * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE
    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

TSUNAMI THREAT FORECAST
-----------------------

  * TSUNAMI WAVES REACHING 0.3 TO 1 METERS ABOVE THE TIDE LEVEL
    ARE POSSIBLE FOR SOME COASTS OF

      JAPAN.


  * ACTUAL AMPLITUDES AT THE COAST MAY VARY FROM FORECAST
    AMPLITUDES DUE TO UNCERTAINTIES IN THE FORECAST AND LOCAL
    FEATURES. IN PARTICULAR MAXIMUM TSUNAMI AMPLITUDES ON ATOLLS
    AND AT LOCATIONS WITH FRINGING OR BARRIER REEFS WILL LIKELY
    BE MUCH SMALLER THAN THE FORECAST INDICATES.

  * FOR OTHER AREAS COVERED BY THIS PRODUCT NO THREAT IS
    EXPECTED.


RECOMMENDED ACTIONS
-------------------

  * GOVERNMENT AGENCIES RESPONSIBLE FOR THREATENED COASTAL AREAS
    SHOULD TAKE ACTION TO INFORM AND INSTRUCT ANY COASTAL
    POPULATIONS AT RISK IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR OWN
    EVALUATION... PROCEDURES AND THE LEVEL OF THREAT.

  * PERSONS LOCATED IN THREATENED COASTAL AREAS SHOULD STAY ALERT
    FOR INFORMATION AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FROM NATIONAL AND
    LOCAL AUTHORITIES.


ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL
--------------------------

  * ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL -ETA- OF THE INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE
    FOR PLACES WITHIN THREATENED REGIONS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL
    ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
    LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN
    WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.
