Earthquake in Cayman

Postby KarenS » Fri Jul 14, 2006 7:10 am

From the Associated Press:
GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands -- A moderate earthquake jolted the Cayman Islands on Tuesday. No injuries or damage were reported.

The magnitude-4.5 quake was centered roughly 30 miles east of George Town roughly 6 miles beneath the earth's surface, officials said.

The quake, which lasted for about 10 seconds, hit at about 8:30 a.m.

Kurt Tibbetts, the top elected official in the Caymans, said the government was developing a seismic monitoring program and had authorized the installation of four seismic sensors in the island chain.
