Small tremor in Cayman

| 04/04/2010

Cayman Islands News, Grand Cayman Island Headline news, Cayman earthquake(CNS): The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has confirmed that another earthquake hit the Cayman Islands this evening (Saturday 3 April). A 4.2 magnitude earthquake occurred around 65 miles south of George Town, Grand Cayman, just after 7 pm today (3 April). At just over 6 miles (10KM) deep, the epicentre of the quake was located at 18.36N 81.376W, which is 64 miles south of Bodden Town and 70 miles south of West Bay. There are no reports of damage (just a few shaky tents) and with such a minor quake there are no threats of a tsunami either.

This is the third time Cayman has experience a smaller earth tremor since the more significant 5.9 quake that rocked Grand Cayman on 19 January.

Meanwhile, according to the USGS statistics, there were 22 other earthquakes today around the world, the strongest being a 5.3 in the Kermadic Islands region in the Southern Pacific ocean. Five of those earthquakes occurred in Alaska alone and four in Baja California, in Mexico.

    Coincidence that every time a research boat goes to explore the deep oceans south of the island we get earth quakes?

    Also note that these research boats claim that they will discover the origins of life through their studies. I say the Govt needs to stop these satanists NOW! The earth quakes are obviously a sign from God!

    Please, this must stop at once! Before our God fearing nation sinks into the abyss!

    God help us!

      Hey CNS, why do you let this trash through the filter?  It offers nothing to your website other than to waste the time of your readers. 

      I mean it’s not even funny in that "Hey, some guy is pretending to be the world’s biggest jackass" kind of way.  It’s just stupid.

      I’m all in favour of free speech mind you, but there has to be at least some cognitive content in the communication for it to be worth protecting.

    I fear to think that alot of these problems are the makings of prophecy!

    If we take a good look around it’s clear to see that even the ‘nay-sayers’ are starting to wonder too?!?

    *WOW*!!

    Well….. I guess this means I WON’T be paying my garbage fees in 2012! (sorry gov’t) *wink*

    God speaks in small whispers sometimes, remember his words and address on prayers to the Pharasees, he reminds us that he sees and knows the very heart of men and nothing is hidden or can be hidden from him again people beware God is very much for real.
