Not again! One week after the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck off the Cayman Islands today.
A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday off the Cayman Islands, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The 6.2-mile deep quake hit at 9:23 a.m. ET, 40 miles from George Town, Cayman Islands, the USGS reported. George Town, the capital, is on the western shore of Grand Cayman Island.
There were no immediate reports of injuries in the three-island chain in the Caribbean.
The British territory of the Cayman Islands is about 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which was devastated last week by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake.
