Areas close to the epicentre have reported surprisingly little damage from the magnitude 7.5 tremblor, but even as power has returned to urban areas, the government has struggled to reach remote island communities.

100 people displaced, and 1 injury reported -- amazing for such a shallow, powerful quake. You do see this in remote rural areas, though.
