An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck 18 km southwest of Malango, Solomon Islands at 02:03:07 GMT on Tuesday, the US Geological Survey said.

Addressing parliament on Tuesday, Albanese said he has contacted the leaders of both nations to offer Australia’s support.

“With over 2,000 homes damaged, I have conveyed to my friend President Joko Widodo Australia’s condolences on this tragic loss of life and we will stand ready to support our friends in Indonesia as Australia always does,” he said.

“We have contacted Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare to signal once again that Australia is ready to help.”

In Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands, all the staff of the Australian high commission are safe. There are no known injuries, but the roof of the high commission annex collapsed, according to Albanese.

“Personnel have been moved to higher ground because a tsunami warning was issued,” he said.

The commission now seeks to confirm the safety of Australians in the country. ■
