SKN, one of three countries rocked by 4.3 magnitude quake

St. Kitts and Nevis (SKN) was one of three islands in the Eastern Caribbean to have been rocked by an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.3. 

 

The Seismic Research Centre at the University of the West Indies (UWI) said the quake occurred just after 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 16th, 2021.

 

It was felt 126 km N of St John’s, Antigua and Barbuda, 131 km NE of Basseterre, St Kitts-Nevis and 226 km NNW of Point-à-Pitre-Guadeloupe.

There were no reports of damage or injuries. 

 

Director of the Nevis Disaster Management Department (NDMD), Mr. Brian Dyer, told the VONNEWSLINE that despite the La Soufriere Volcano in St. Vincent and the Grenadines erupting last month, the quake has no link to the Volcano:
