  1. There is a BIG diffference between magnitudes 5.8 and 6.5. Somebody’s earthquake equipment needs recalibrating. UWI’s?

  2. Hoping that the EMERGENCY Management/Disaster Teams are staying ready! Not getting ready, nor will be ready! Ready to go!
    Not sounding no alarm but those #Tectonic plates in the Caribbean Sea are very unstable. This is real science not church seance!
