7.6 Quake Strikes Caribbean.


7.6 magnitude earthquake happened last night at 9.51pm at a depth of 6.2 miles
The tremor was one of the largest to hit the Caribbean region in recorded history
Struck in the Caribbean Sea 25 miles from Honduras island of Great Swan Island
A tsunami advisory was put in place for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands
There were fears it could impact the coasts of Central American nations, including Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands
But the warnings were later canceled and in the end no tsunami materialized

Thank goodness it's not El Herrio doing anything it shouldn't.  The US East Coast actually is at great risk if that ever goes. Look it up! I wish I were joking but here won't be anything left of the east coast if the tsunami happens from that volcano. The modest approach shows no less then a 1,200 foot wave that would strike within hours if El Herrio were to go completely.   First striking Florida then traveling up towards the Hudson Valley though at that stage most momentum would be gone.
