Tsunami possible

Published 28th January 2020, 2:50pm

USGS has indicated that a 7.7 magnitude earthquake has occurred approximately 80 miles ESE of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.

The event was strongly felt. It is likely that a tsunami was generated. As a precaution move away from coastal areas and if in low lying areas - evacuate vertically in strong strong multi story buildings.

Updates will follow. If you are in a building that was structurally damaged remain outside in outdoor areas as aftershocks are possible.
