A powerful earthquake struck the Caribbean on Tuesday afternoon, shaking parts of Jamaica and Cuba shortly after 2 p.m. local time and rising fears of a dangerous tsunami.The earthquake was originally rated a 7.3 by the USGS but was later upgraded to a 7.7. The epicenter of the earthquake was 78 miles (125 km) northwest of Lucea, Jamaica, and was shallow with a depth of just 6.2 miles (10 km).Shortly after the powerful earthquake jolted the Caribbean, the Pacific tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) warned of the potential for hazardous tsunami waves as high as 1 meter (3 feet) along some coasts of Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands.Roughly 30 minutes after the shaking had stopped, a tsunami wave of 0.11 of a meter (0.4 of a foot) was officially observed at George Town, Cayman Islands. No tsunami waves were observed at Jamaica or the Dominican Republic, with the tsunami danger passing by 4 p.m. local time Tuesday.
