Earthquake rocks St. Lucia

SNO and CMC/Caribbean 360

Tuesday’s earthquake is the latest in a series of tremors that have occurred in several Caribbean countries this year.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.1 jolted St. Lucia on Tuesday night, May 7, 2013, the Trinidad-based Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the University of the West Indies (UWI) reported Wednesday.

The earthquake, which occurred at 11:45 pm, had a depth of 20km, and was located at 14.02° degrees north, and 60.61 degrees west, the SRC reported.

The centre said the quake “may have been felt in nearby islands” but there have been no reports of injury or damage.

Last night’s tremor is reported to be the latest in a series of earthquakes that have occurred in several Caribbean countries this year.

Earlier this month, Trinidad and Tobago was affected by 3.7 tremor as officials warn the country to prepared for a major earthquake.

And late last month, Antigua and Barbuda and several other countries in the Leeward Islands were also affected by an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1.
