Increased Seismic Activity In The Caribbean

From Prensa Latina:

Port Spain, JUl 11 (Prensa Latina) The University of the West Indies has reported an increase in seismic activity in the eastern part of the Caribbean Sea, after three earthquakes were registered on several islands in the region in the last 48 hours.

The Unit of Seismologic Control of the University of the West Indies said on Monday that a quake measuring 4.4 on the Richter scale shook the island of Dominica early this morning, after two earthquakes impacted Trinidad and Tobago at the weekend.

Although non of the affected islands reported damage, there still exists a danger of landslides and sea movements. Specialists have warned of the potential risk of similar events in the following hours.

The earthquake registered in Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday of a magnitude of 3.6 degrees was followed by another one, on Sunday, with magnitude of 4.2 degrees. The epicenter of the earthquake in Dominica was located 58 kilometers northeast of Roseau, the capital of the island.

For many years, experts have warned of the possibility of intense earthquakes and their subsequent tsunamis, impacting the Caribbean, because of the existence of important telluric movements.
