Earthquakes rock T&T amidst flooding woes

Trinidad and Tobago was shaken by another earthquake late Monday night.

The UWI’s Seismic Research Centre recorded the magnitude as 5.1 at 11.33p.m.

It was located 10 kilometres deep, 88 kilometres west southwest of Port of Spain, 91 kilometres west northwest of San Fernando and 110 east southwest of Carupano, Venezuela.

A magnitude 5.1 tremor was also recorded at 12.35 p.m. Sunday.

And one occurred on October 20 at 4:41 p.m. with a depth of 60 kilometres, and was also felt in nearby Barbados and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Fortunately, no damage or injuries were reported.

These earthquakes and tremors come after the afternoon of August 21, when a magnitude 6.9 magnitude earthquake jolted Trinidad and the region, causing widespread damages and terrifying the population.
