Strong quake strikes Caribbean near Martinique


in.reuters.com

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A powerful but very deep earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 struck near the Caribbean island of Martinique on Thursday, the United States Geological Survey said.

The quake hit at 1900 GMT (3 p.m. local) 13 miles (21 km) northwest of the island, at a depth of 90 miles (145.4 km), it said. Earthquakes with a deep epicenter are less likely to cause damage.

Apparently there is no Tsunami warning issued, which is a very good thing. The Atlantic is not as prepared for that as the Pacific rim is.

Another U.S. agency, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, issued a separate statement for Caribbean countries except for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. It said that a tsunami was not expected in the Caribbean because of the depth of the quake.


Lets hope there aren't too many people affected by this on the islands closest to it as well.
