4.0 earthquake registered near Cayman

No injuries or damage has been reported after a 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Cayman Sunday (21 January).

However unlike the 9 January 7.6 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Honduras, no Tsunami alerts were triggered.

Hazard Management Cayman Islands described it as a “small tremor.” It occurred south east of Grand Cayman at a depth of five miles.

The seismic event was registered about 45 miles south east of East End.

Earlier this month the HMCI came under fire for its delayed response following the earthquake of the coast of Honduras after it failed to inform citizens in a timely manner of a Tsunami warning issued in the aftermath of that seismic event.
