AR-1601098445.0 earthquake hits T&T

By Sandhya Santoo From Trinidad Express

Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada registered a 5.0 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday, and the experts are warning of more to come.

According to the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre, the earthquake occurred at 10:33 a.m. North of the Paria Peninsula Trinidad, at a depth of 33 kilometres.

“This zone is one of the most active areas around Trinidad so that this event is not surprising and well within our range of expected activity”, according to a statement from the SRC.

Director of the SRC, Dr Joan Latchman said Tuesday’s quake was not generated by the Kick’em Jenny underwater volcano located eight kilometres north of Grenada.

She said the earthquake is one of many expected to occur during the year.

She said, “in the Paria peninsula area there is no volcanism at this time. So this earthquake was tectonic”.

Latchman also warned that Trinidadians need to be better prepared for a long overdue quake.

She said, “we have seen some improvements in the attention by the citizenry are taking for what we are saying. However, we would like to see that translated into actual preparedness in getting and putting the measures in place, so that when that event does occur, we have measures in place”.

Latchman said she hopes that both individually and nationally, citizens are prepared.

She said the SRC will continue to monitor and advise, “of the levels of activity we are recording but at this time this is constant with what we see in this area. We can expect more to occur”.
