A Caribbean-wide tsunami watch is in effect, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

"Earthquakes of this size have the potential to generate a widespread destructive tsunami that can affect coastlines across the entire Caribbean region," the warning center said.

There have been a lot of recent EQ's along the pacific ROF. I think the big one in Japan started something. I would be concerned if i lived along the SA fault right now. All this movement elsewhere has to have a knock on effect along there some time soon. Hopefully I'm wrong.
