The biggest earthquake in the Caribbean in several years caused shaking across the Southern Caribbean on Tuesday evening.

The 5.8-magnitude quake’s epicenter was about 25 miles southwest of Scarborough, Tobago; it struck at about 5:42 PM local time at a depth of 35km.

Shaking was felt across much of the southern Caribbean, including in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada (there were also reports of shaking in Venezuela.

The strongest reports of shaking were in Trinidad, including in Port of Spain, with “moderate” strength, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The Caribbean region is seismically active, although the most frequent earthquakes tend to fall in the 3.0-4.0 range on the Richter scale.

There were not yet reports of damage or injuries resulting from the quake.

This newly-found marine life has scientists baffled as to what it is

By Kevin Reilly From Business Insideer

Scientists from the National Ocean and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) have found an organism that they can’t explain. The moss-like thing was found more than 1,700 feet underwater.

Cargo vessel owners admit damage to Cayman Islands coral reef

Last month as has been widely reported in Cayman’s media, Saga, a 100 metre cargo vessel ran aground in George Town Harbour off Eden Rock. The ship caused considerable damage to the reef and the owners of Saga have admitted to being responsible for it.

The owners have engaged marine experts to assess the damage and remove the rubble and coral that cannot be reattached.

Cayman Islands Wayne Panton has confirmed the company had “stepped up and taken responsibility”. He said the priority was assessing the extent of the damage.

 

Surround sound

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio

One of the joys of the upcoming holiday season for me is music. The best venue is right around the corner.

The University of Colorado is within walking distance of our home and each year the college of music puts on a sold out spectacular in the university’s Macky auditorium—one of the better sounding venues I have attended. Just take a look at this gorgeous architecture, including the horn loaded stage.

Two of the more remarkable highlights of the Christmas show: real, traditional Christmas songs + Santa, and surround sound.

Indeed, surround sound. Terri scored for us orchestra seating and midway through the event the balcony pews are filled with choral singers. Voices surround you while the orchestra croons. Amazing.

The finale is Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus from his masterpiece The Messiah. Closing my eyes for the sound to wash over me in full 360˚ is Christmas present enough.

Of course I cannot listen to the hifi for some time after an event like this.

Cayman 27’s Parade of Lights entertains thousands

Last Saturday (3) thousands of people flocked to Camana bay to watch the Annual Caymn27 Parade of Lights. This was the brain child of WestStar TV’s first manager Mike Martin and has grown over its many years that started in Hogsty Bay, George Town before moving to its present home Camana Bay

After the excellent singing from The First Cayman Baptist Choir, who were also there from the very first event, spectators saw thirteen brilliantly decorated boats show off their hard work by sailing around twice. This was followed by a fireworks display.

Unfortunately one of the boats did not show off its full potential of lights due to generator malfunction.

The theme of this year was Christmas stories.

Red Sail Sports with its underwater theme that featured creatures of the deep, such as stingrays and seahorses won the “Big Boat” award, and Beachcomber won the “Small Boat” award, with its theme of a Christmas castaway tropical island.

Cayman Islands police Joint Marine Unit advisory to boat owners: Secure Your Vessels

The Joint Marine Unit is urging boat owners to be vigilant in securing their vessels from opportunistic thefts. Aside from locking their vessels, further security measures, such as GPS tracking or systems that can remotely disable boats, should be strongly considered.

“In addition to added security features, one simple tip is to limit the amount of fuel in a vessel,” says Inspector Leo Anglin, Marine Commander, “with only fifty miles worth of fuel a thief cannot get very far. Full fuel tanks, however, can make a boat a more attractive target.”

For further information, or to report any suspicious activity around boats, call the Joint Marine Unit at 649-7710 or George Town Police Station at 949-4222.

Cayman Airways has taken delivery of its first B737-800, VP-CNG (MSN 30289).

The aircraft, formerly LN-NOO with Norwegian, has been leased from Air Lease Corporation on a twenty-five month contract.

The move comes as the Caymanian carrier will have to wait for the fourth quarter of 2018 for the delivery of the first of the four B737 MAX 8s it will lease from ALC.

All the four B737 MAXs will be delivered by the third quarter of 2020.

Cayman Airways is using the new jets to replace its existing fleet of four B737-300s which will be gone by 2020.

November Events at Camana Bay

Good afternoon,

This month you can look forward to beloved rituals and the start of our holiday events. If you look closely in the Town Centre, you can see light bulbs sprinkled throughout, but they won’t be turned on until Santa comes to flick the magical switch at our annual Tree Lighting ceremony.

There’s a lot more to come…keep your elf ears to the ground for our Holiday Events Press Release coming in a couple of weeks, which will include a full details on how everyone can have the most wonderful time at Camana Bay this holiday season.

Warm regards,
Alyson Hay
