Powerful Earthquake in Caribbean Prompts Tsunami Warnings
11 January, 2018, 09:31 | Author: Brenda Erickson
A 7.6-magnitude natural disaster rocked an island archipelago 150 kilometres off the coast of Honduras late Tuesday, setting off regional tsunami advisories which were later cancelled. For instance, the 2010 quake that caused major damage in Haiti was a lesser magnitude of 7.0.
Shaking was registered across the nation of Honduras and there were reports of cracked homes in Colon and Atlantida provinces along the northern coast and eastern Honduras, according to officials. Tsunami warnings were put into effect after the quake struck, but were ultimately canceled. The quake struck in the sea Tuesday night about 125 miles north-northeast of Barra Patuca, Honduras, and 188 miles southwest of George Town, Cayman Islands.
The natural disaster, which was initially reported as having a 7.8 magnitude, occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers, or 6 miles, on Tuesday night.
Tsunami warnings were issued for parts of the coast of Central America, as well as Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, Cuba, Jamaica, and other Caribbean islands, but no tsunami occurred.
