A strong 7.3 quake hit the Caribbean today, August  21, 2018!

Thankfully there were no casualties or major damages reported.

But of course the shake sent people running from their homes and businesses across the region and the Caribbean.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, “the quake was registered at 5:31 p.m. ET about 12½ miles north-northwest of Yaguaraparo on the northeast tip of Venezuela.

Telesur, the Caracas-based national TV channel, reported that shaking was felt across the country. Buildings rocked and items fell off shelves across the Caribbean island of Trinidad.”

The Trinidad Express newspaper reported, adding: “The country has been stunned.”

Here’s a video footage that was taken:
