A powerful earthquake shook the Caribbean islands at about 2 p.m. Eastern Time. The epicenter was deep, about 140 km down, which spread the shock a little and helps to prevent tsunamis. The strength has been upgraded from an estimated six-ish to 7.3. At that strength we’ll expect to see some broken glass, fallen shelves, perhaps structural damage, and injuries.
The epicenter was about 35 km south of Roseau, the capital of Dominica.
