If you’re signed up for VITEMA alerts, your phone has probably been buzzing more than usual today.
One alert email said: Today’s swarm of Earthquake Tremors Not Unusual for Region.
More than 20 tremors – considered minor earthquakes – were registered between 4:30 in the morning and lunchtime, from 2.6 to 3.4 magnitude.
“This sort of earthquake activity, called a ‘swarm of tremors,’ occurs several times a year in different parts of the Caribbean region and is not unusual and so it is not alarming,” says Elton Lewis, VITEMA director.
“Be prepared, but not alarmed,” he says.
