May 2015 – FIJI, South Pacific – Tremors experienced in the district of Nakasaleka and Rakiraki in Kadavu have stopped. The Mineral Resources Department says a team will be going to the villages that experienced the tremors to carry out a geological investigation. Director Malakai Finau says they will try to find why it is localized. “We need to investigate so we could find out more information about the events such as the centre; the epicenter and the depths and that would help us find out the real causes of these tremors.” The tremors were experienced in the past week. Villagers reported cracks to walls of a hall and some houses in Nakasaleka. –RSOE
