Caribbean urged to be prepared for larger seismic events

10 Jan 2019, Saint Lucia - gov

Seismologists have predicted that the Caribbean needs to prepare for a much larger earthquake incident, following recordings of a burst of 54 small earthquakes near the north of St. Kitts in early December. Governments should take earthquake preparation into consideration when making public policy, and should take cues from counterparts in California and Japan.
