Getting around the islands can be half the adventure of discovering new rum.

One person has died and damage is being assessed on Martinique and neighboring islands after a 7.4 earthquake occurred NNW of Martinique Nov 29th. More . . .

Here's another report from the US Geological Survey.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Holy smokes...This is the first I heard of it. I didn't have my radio on today so I missed the news. We have some rumblers here on a pretty regular basis. But this is MAJOR. Thanks for the heads up.

What a shame.....Martinique had some hurricane problems this year also.
I was thinking of taking a trip there in the late spring this year. This Island is at the top of my list to visit. I am glad there were not a lot of injuries.

7.4 is a whopper of a quake too. I don't know how many people here have been in a quake before, but the strongest I've ever been in was a 6.3 which woke everyone up and had the entire house shaking and swaying a good deal...and that means that this quake was 11 orders of magnitude stronger than that.
