August 22, 2011 (probably; i don’t keep track)

The first tremor reached Port Vila around 04:00hrs and at 07:00hrs authorities locked the prison and cancelled the tsunami warning  We’d set sail before midnight to begin an overnight passage to Emae and were over the epicentre at…04:00hrs. Some of the crew felt the hull vibrate from the earthquake’s reported 7.4 force. I slept soundly.
