TWO MORE QUAKES were recorded off Caribbean islands today, bringing the number to three in the region in less than 24 hours.

The latest occurred at 10:49 a.m. at a depth of 30km, or roughly 79km east of Fort-de-France, Martinique and some 84 km north east of Castries, Saint Lucia.

It measured 4.3 on the Richter scale.

The Seismic Research Centre of the University of the West Indies also recorded a 3.8 magnitude quake at 5:02 a.m., 26km south southwest of Basseterre, Saint Kitts and Nevis.

These follow a 5.4 magnitude earthquake (below) off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago last night. (SAT)
