Just coming across the wire.

EDIT: Tsunami alert was lifted. Shakes the whole Caribbean, damage from Trinidad to Venezuela.


A powerful earthquake has shaken eastern Venezuela, causing buildings to be evacuated in the capital of Caracas. And now the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre says a tsunami is possible within nearly 200 miles of the earthquake epicentre. The quake has been placed at a 7.3 magnitude with its epicentre being 13 miles southwest of Irapa, the U.S. Geological Survey says.

More here at the Daily Mail, they always have good pictures.

Sending hopes and prayers!

Thanks for posting. On the map it appears on shore, could just be the map. Given depth could this affect southern US

According to the news story it was off the shore. Don't think it could effect the US, but I am not an expert. Lets hope as few people as possible are effected by this.

The earthquake was 76.3 miles underground. Damaged the Tower of David, the skyscraper that squatters were occupying, and split a restaurant in half:

The island of Vanuatu was hit by a 6.7 magnitude earthquake hours ago.
