ROSEAU, Dominica, Feb. 28, CMC – The Seismic Center at the University of the West Indies (UWI) says an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.3 was felt in southern Dominica on Thursday.

The Seismic Centre located on the St. Augustine Campus in Trinidad and Tobago, reports that at 1:37 pm (local time), the quake was felt close to the Petite Soufriere area.

The Centre said that because the event was relatively shallow at 12 kilometers it would have been felt in the southern part of the Island.

This was followed by a burst of smaller earthquakes.

Thursday’s tremor follows one with a magnitude of 3.3 which was also followed by a burst of smaller events.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.
