Re: tsunami warning caribbean

That's a fairly strong quake. For those who don't know, the Richter Scale for the strengths of quakes is logarithmic, not linear. Saw a news bite on abc that said office buildings in Miami had been evacuated. Obviously, low lying structures are most likely to be affected.

Re: tsunami warning caribbean

Belize and most of the Caribbean countries were also on that warning list - but zero damage.
