After a week of unrest an earthquake of 7.4 in the Caribbean

november 20 2007

The earth has been far from quiet the last week.

Have a look at the dates:

  • 23 4 quakes between 5.3 and 5.8 (1 Papua New Guinea, 3 Tonga)
  • 24 4 quakes between 5.0 and 5.7
  • 25 9 quakes between 5.0 and 6.4 (6.4 and 6.3 at Sumbawa region, Indonesia; 6.1 Kepulauan Mentawai Region, Indonesia.
  • 26 9 quakes between 5.0 and 5.8
  • 27 8 quakes between 5.0 and 6.6 (6.6 Solomon Islands)
  • 28 2 quakes between 5.0 and 5.3
  • 29 7 quakes between 5.0 and 7.4

The quake of 7.4 has been at the Martinique Region, Windward Islands.
That's the eastern Caribbean.

Minor injuries have been reported from the Island of Martinique.
The earthquake was felt in Suriname, Venezuela and Puerto Rico.

The quake was too deep for a tsunami. (90 miles.)

There has been damage, but how much is not yet clear.
