7.7 Caribbean quake. Tsunami warnings issued.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...uofEc9jit5COXA

A massive 7.7-magnitude earthquake in the Caribbean triggered a tsunami warning in several countries including Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands on Tuesday.

The quake struck at 2.10pm EST in the strait between Jamaica and Cuba. Its epicenter was about 72 miles northwest of Lucea, Jamaica, and 87 miles southwest of Niquero, Cuba, at a depth of 6.2 miles, according to the US Geological Survey.

Schools and buildings in Jamaica and Cuba were evacuated after people reported feeling the ground shake for about a minute. The quake was felt as far away as Miami, where several downtown skyscrapers were evacuated.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued an alert cautioning that waves up to 3.5-feet above the normal tide level were possible along the coasts of Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

I'm looking at the USGS site and have never seen so many 4+ magnitude quakes on the screen at once. The plates are a shifting for sure.

Not a map, but you can click on each of the quakes to get there. See if this works.

not really.

"On average, Magnitude 2 and smaller earthquakes occur several hundred times a day world wide. Major earthquakes, greater than magnitude 7, happen more than once per month. "Great earthquakes", magnitude 8 and higher, occur about once a year."

Live on Roatan(Honduras). Did not feel it , chances are, will not see anything from it . Sucks for those close to the epicenter.

The ring of fire does that regularly. Most earthquakes are not felt.
