    Earth Tremor Felt in Cayman

    Slideshow
    The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 5.8 magnitude earthquake has struck off the Cayman Islands.

    CNN spoke with a person in Grand Cayman who said there were no initial reports of injuries.

    A photographer told the Reuters news agency that the earthquake shook his apartment for about 10 seconds.

    Monday a strong earthquake rocked Guatemala and parts of El Salvador, but no there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in either country.

    That quake hit about 60 miles southwest of Guatemala City, where it was felt by many residents. There were reports of shaking in the Guatemalan countryside and in El Salvador as well.

    Tuesday's quake happened southeast of the Cayman Islands.

    Happens all the time.

    I remember there was a tremor in Barbados in 2007.

    A few other islands felt it too.

    Damn, do all tremors and earthquakes need to be reported now?

    Unhappy

    The plates must not be at rest yet so I'm sure they will keep rattling and there will keep being reports of earthquakes until this thing settles. I hope everyone is alright

    Newsflash: The plates never rest. It's how the earth works.

    What I mean is that not all the energy that was built up in the faults going through the West Indies were released in the earthquake in Port-au-Prince. So we (Caribbean) are probably at risk for more quakes on a larger scale than the average ones.

    So does that mean that earthquakes 5 and up have always been occurring on an ongoing basis? People are on edge right now because it is not the normto be having daily earthquakes. My friends that are in Cayman were quite shaken up as this is not something normal for them. You does post all kinda other fackery but earthquakes being reported is a problem? lol what a mess...
