Caribbean 360 is reporting that Trinidad has been hit by a second earthquake this week. The author reports:

“Trinidad and Tobago was jolted Wednesday by an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.9 less than a week after the oil rich twin island republic was shaken by one with a 6.4 magnitude.

The Trinidad-based Seismic Unit of the University of the West Indies (UWI) said that the new quake was located north of the Paria Peninsula  and occurred at around 7.19 am (local time).

It said it had a depth of 64 kilometers and was 10.89 degrees north, 62.21 degrees west. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

On Friday night, the earthquake also rattled Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Guyana forcing electricity cuts in several areas of Trinidad.”
