Strong Earthquake in Caribbean Sea Triggers Tsunami Warning Strong Earthquake in Caribbean Sea Triggers Tsunami Warning

An natural disaster of magnitude 7.6 struck near remote Caribbean Islands belonging to Honduras on Tuesday, sparking a tsunami warning for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

"It felt like a bulldozer was driving past", he said.

Tremors from the late-night quake were clearly felt in Chetumal and other areas around southern Quintana Roo including Bacalar. "It didn't last very long but was very violent".

Tsunami sirens were heard going off along the coast of Belize shortly after the magnitude 7.6 quake hit northeast of Honduras. It occurred about 6 miles below the surface.

The U.S. Tsunami Center canceled the alert for the two Caribbean islands, as well as Jamaica, Cuba, the Cayman Islands, the coast of Mexico, Honduras, and Belize, saying the tsunami threat of waves up to three feet had passed.

Despite the strength of the quake and several aftershocks, no major damage was reported from the event.

The quake's epicentre was 44 kilometres east of Honduras' sparsely inhabited Swan Islands at a depth of 10 kilometres, according to reviewed results published by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The shallow natural disaster was recorded at 9:51 p.m. with its epicenter 450 kilometers east of Mahahual, Quintana Roo, at 17.5 n, 83.6 w, at a depth of 33 kilometers and a magnitude of 7.5.
