VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

REPORTS FROM THE SOLOMON ISLANDS, IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC, SAY DISASTER TEAMS ARE TRYING TO REACH FOUR VILLAGES HIT BY A TSUNAMI ON WEDNESDAY.

A MAGNITUDE EIGHT-POINT-OH EARTHQUAKE SENT FIVE-FOOT WAVES SLAMMING INTO THE AREA.

THE PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE SAYS MANY VILLAGERS HEADED TO HIGHER GROUND AFTER THE QUAKE STRUCK, AND THAT IT'S BELIEVED SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

AUSTRALIA IS OFFERING AID.

SOUNDBITE: BOB CARR/AUSTRALIAN FOREIGN MINISTER

"We're very eager to assist if the government of the Solomons thinks Australia can help."

TRACK-2

WAVES WERE SMALLER BY THE TIME THEY REACHED THE SOLOMON ISLANDS' CAPITAL.
